Robillard Louino, a community leader from Cite Soleil and a member of HC’s Board, is launching an initiative to recognize ordinary citizens in Cite Soleil who are doing extraordinary things to build peace in their communities. With all of the negative attention that Cite Soleil receives because of its history of gang violence, the positive work of local community groups and leaders is often ignored or overlooked. To counter this under-appreciation of local heroes, Robillard will award four residents of Cite Soleil with a peace prize in June. He hopes it will not only encourage these four individuals to stay motivated, but inspire others to follow their lead, and demonstrate that the people of Cite Soleil want – and are willing to work for – peace.
