The first Haitian Presidential debate in the US.

With the Haitian Diaspora's attention, four Haitian presidential candidates' hopefuls squared off in a debate. The debate was focused primarily on health care, education, decentralization, security, development, reconstruction, and the judicial system.

The candidates had the opportunity to present their program and strategies. This debate was very valuable in term of expanding communication between the candidates and the Diasporas community. More than 700 members have attended and for those who couldn't attend the debate was broadcasted on several local television, and Live Streaming Partners TeleAmerica and Minkoze have allowed millions of viewers worldwide to watch the debate.
