The Haitian Voice
Founded in 2006, Connecticut Haitian Voice is a free monthly newspaper written in English, Haitian Creole and French. The Connecticut Haitian Voice prioritizes information that serves the Haitian-American population as well as conveys a message of pride, unity, tolerance, resilience and responsible leadership. Our influence has been largely documented by national and local news organizations such as The Associated Press, Connecticut Post, The Stamford Advocate and The Norwich Bulletin. The Connecticut Haitian Voice made history in December 2010 by becoming the first newspaper that is distributed free of charge in Haiti, where a subscription to a print publication is considered a luxury. Connecticut Haitian Voice is our personal commitment to accompany our fellow Haitian sisters and brothers in the struggle to rebuild our destroyed beloved country. Genuine dedication, sacrifices and active participation are necessary in order for Haiti to see the light at the end of the tunnel. We believe that reliable and constructive information is a critical component in any apparatus intended to put the country on the right track. The small group of communication outlets functioning in Haiti cannot do it alone. It is an imperative that we all share the burden with them. We are inviting you to join us in this worthwhile endeavor. We need your help. Your financial support will enable us to continue to deliver unbiased and professional information free of charge to thousands of people in the Tri-State area, as well as in Haiti. Angelucci Manigat, Jr. Publisher and Editor in Chief
