HANA – 2015 Year End Newsletter

As we approach the end of 2015, I want to take the opportunity to reflect on the successes and challenges of a very busy year. The Haitian American Nurses Association of Florida (HANA), Inc. is extremely blessed to have dedicated members, advisers, and supporters who work tirelessly to keep the legacy of the association alive. It has indeed been an extraordinary year for us. On behalf of HANA, it is with great pleasure that I wish you a happy and peaceful holiday season.

HANA has been very visible in the community and abroad. We have been working on advocating for our nurses. It is unfortunate that a month ago, a healthcare agency in New York decided to place a discriminatory advertisement in a newspaper for LPNs and RNs, boldly stating “No Haitians”. HANA took a clear stand against this offensive ad and demanded a full investigation and substantial penalty levied against this corporate perpetrator of hate. The media was made aware of our disappointment and we are now expecting a thorough investigation to be conducted by the Department of Justice concerning this civil rights violation. We displayed solidarity with our sister HANA chapters in combating racism to positively effect change.

In an effort to increase our visibility and continue marketing our brand, HANA members participated in the annual Black Caucus Convention in Washington, DC for the first time. Consequently, we encourage our members to get

involved in the legislative processes related to nursing and healthcare. There are several other legislative activities that are scheduled for 2016 in collaboration with other organizations. These include FNA 2016 Advocacy Days in Tallahassee and National Black Nurses Association 28th Annual Day on Capitol Hill, in Washington, DC. Since the last newsletter publication in April 2015, HANA continues to fulfill its passion for mentoring and providing educational support to the local community and abroad.
