Help Provide Missing Haiti Coverage | The LA Progressive
Next week, Georgianne Nienaber departs on a 12-day investigative research trip to Haiti where she will look to fill in gaps in the mainstream media’s news coverage while also providing emergency medical assistance to rural Haitians. As she works with Haitian human rights organizations to develop story ideas, she also invites LA Progressive readers to contribute their thoughts on where else she might look. For the past year, Georgianne has provided our readers with in-depth coverage of the often overlooked human rights tragedy in Africa based on her research in South Africa, Rwanda, and the Democratic Republic of Congo from 2007 to 2009. She expects to complete a book on the horrific violence and human dislocation going on in eastern Congo later this year.
