A bipartisan effort, the Haiti Criminal Collusion Transparency Act seeks to impose individual sanctions on those responsible for the violence: gang leaders and the political and economic elites who support them.

Plantain Project Report
We have experienced some unexpected weather patterns in Gros Morne during the past few months, which matches issues we have faced in the past few years. Due to high winds and a lack of rain, farmers in many different areas of the Gros Morne region were not able to take advantage of the start of the regular spring planting season again this year. Small farmers are more vulnerable to these climatic changes because it is more difficult for them to shift to a different garden crop with a different growing season.
