Carnival--which ended last month in Haiti--is my favorite time of year.
The beauty of Haitian culture shines brighter than ever. More than a million people take to the streets with music, dance and vibrant costumes to celebrate freedom, good health and good fortune.
Hundreds of thousands of ears are tuned in to the local radio stations playing their favorite Carnival tunes.
This year, though, they're hearing something new.
They're hearing the words of our Rethinking Power community activists, who have written and aired a series of radio shows that address violence against women and girls and the impact Carnival has on this violence. While Carnival embodies the rich culture of Haiti, it's also a time that is particularly dangerous for women and girls.
These past few weeks, the radio shows have been broadcasting across 4 popular radio stations.
They're inspiring courage and sharing the tools they need to stop violence against women and girls in their own communities.
You can also invite your friends to listen to this amazing work, too, by sharing this post.
Thank you for joining the movement to end violence against women and girls in Haiti!
