The discussion, titled "We Bend, But We Don't Break" features a trio of New Orleanians who are actively assisting Hatians suffering from a lack of housing and cholera, and explore the human rights crisis taking place in the small country. It will take place at Community Book Center (2523 Bayou Road) beginning at 6 p.m.
