Educate. Participate. Provocate.

Our next Provocate-Haiti meeting will be Thursday, September 13, 7pm … we’re going to watch some Haitian-Hoosier soccer!

@ IUPUI
Michael A. Carroll Track & Soccer Stadium
1001 West New York Street

Game starts @ 7pm; doors open @ 5:30

If you’re in Indy, please mark your calendars to join us!

Why, you may ask, is Provocate—Haiti meeting at a soccer stadium? To cheer on the Haitian National Women’s Soccer team, which is playing a friendly match against the 9th ranked Matildas of Australia. The game is being played in Indianapolis because the local team, FC Indiana, has most of the Haitian National Team members. They are virtually Hoosiers. Come for a great game, stay for autographs after the game … and join the Haitian Association of Indiana, the Provocate-Haiti network,  and other friends of Haiti in welcoming 18 excellent athletes from Haiti to our community.

Poverty and despotism, an earthquake, a hurricane, cholera … it’s easy to think of Haiti as nothing but constant problems periodically punctuated by total disasters.  We think of Haiti differently.  The problems may be enormous and many, but our ability to make significant changes in people’s lives is, too. Small acts can have giant consequences in the circumstances of individuals, families, communities. That means Haiti is an opportunity rather than a burden, it’s a chance to be part of something special.
