Recognizing Achievement

Who are the Haitian-Americans making a difference in America? To answer that question, HRT partners with The Haitian Times, Kompa Guide, Radio Soleil, RJ Media and The Stewardship Report to select from hundreds of nominations for The 1804 List of Haitian-American Changemakers and Ones To Watch, which recognizes thought leaders, innovators and unsung heroes across the U.S. Each year HRT hosts a recognition ceremony to celebrate the honorees.
