"For nearly 20 years Gina Cheron has been helping to serve the Haitian community. She is the Board Chair and was a co-founder of Dwa Fanm, the only Haitian organization in the NYCity area focusing on women’s rights and domestic violence

"Her focus as a FAR Fund Fellow will be on launching a program of Dwa Fanm called Jistis Pou Fanm (Haitian Creole for “Justice for Women”). Jistis Pou Fanm will provide legal representation and advocacy for victims of domestic violence as well as an educational outlet so that young Haitian women will better know their rights as well as be able to advocate for themselves more effectively."
