It's the year 2010, and the potential for the Black American community to help with the rebuilding process in Haiti is phenomenal.We have so much intellectual property, collectively.We have so much financial property, collectively.And we have so much spiritual affiliation with our Brothers and Sisters who were able to overcome the immediate shackles of slavery.It would be nice to have Haiti one day shine as a testament to our collective victory over the indignity and injustice that still stains our history. That would be a true tribute to Freedom.A good next step would be to come together to help our Brothers and Sisters organize and rebuild.A good next step could be the building of an Information Clearinghouse. I'll break that out into a separate post.
INFORMATION CLEARINGHOUSE - We should work to make more visible, or create fromscratch if necessary, an IT web site, accessible to mobile phones for reporting problems and needs related to rebuilding Haiti - A body would be needed, probably coordinating with the Haitian government, to make sure that the overall effort is optimally directed and resources prioritized as needed ( including requesting aid of a given type when if such a need is identified ).The website could address things like water needed in a given area, clothing, employment, business startups that address current systemic needs, etc.For issues that are already addressed by other bodies, governmental or private, the site help could direct people towards those bodies instead of duplicating effort.
