Congresswoman Maxine Waters

Representing the 43rd District of California

Haiti


I have long been an advocate for the people of Haiti, the poorest nation in the Western Hemisphere. I have traveled extensively to the country both before and after the January 12th, 2010 earthquake, and know that the Haitian people are a proud and resilient people. 

Some of my work includes securing debt relief for Haiti from multilateral financial institutions like the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund, and advocating for stronger democratic and electoral processes in the country.

I am impressed by the international community's assistance to Haiti in its time of need, and I am hopeful for the country's future. We must remain committed to the long-term recovery of Haiti. 

In this section you can read about some my work, as well as watch and listen to television and radio interviews I conducted in the days, weeks, and months following the earthquake.
