WNYC’s Jerome L. Greene Performance Space will present "Haiti's Future: New York City Speaks", a platform for key voices in New York to convene and explore many of the wide-ranging consequences of the tragedy.

Farai Chideya, multimedia journalist and contributor to WNYC and PRI’s The Takeaway, and Garry Pierre-Pierre, Editor and Publisher, Haitian Times, will moderate a panel of elected officials, economic and media experts, community activists, and everyday Haitian-Americans in a discussion of the earthquake’s impact from Haiti to NYC to the world.
