NHAEON aims to address national and international issues and the impact these policies have on the Haitian community in the US.

The Network is a non-partisan coalition of elected and appointed officials determined to improve relations between the United States of America and the Republic of Haiti.

NHAEON is committed to bringing a renewed national and local focus on key legislative, diplomatic, security, economic and human rights issues in this critical part of the world.

NHAEON’s Mission is to: Support the introduction of key legislation, and policies critical to Haiti and organize congressional and local briefings on current events and disseminate information to interested parties.

Topics on which the Network will focus include:
  • United States aid to Haiti
  • Immigration Reform
  • United States State Department designation of Haiti
  • Promote structural, economic, and humanitarian investment in Haiti.

Build stronger communication between elected officials of Haitian descent in the United States who are members of federal, state and local governments.

Serve as a vehicle for keeping elected officials across the United States connected to work being done in Haitian communities nationally and to promote issues of concern to Haiti.

Keep Haitian American elected officials apprised of American foreign and domestic policies relevant to Haiti and assure that members of NHAEON are given the opportunity to make a difference by offering their observations, critique and/or support.
