A select group of Haitian vendors joined us; Vendors included: Cantave de Saint Marc brought delicious Haiti-grown coffee, Les Chocolateries Askanya brought the rich chololat delights, and Kapha Group brought us vibrant Haiti-made clothing and homewares.

 

Living true to our Haitian roots, Prince offered a special tribute to our Haitian motherland and to motherhood: “Today’s not just celebrating the flag. Today we stand with mothers and children, and the fight for healthcare. It is their right to choose what happens with their bodies.”
