Haitian Voices
Haitian Voices is a monthly community affairs program highlighting the major issues facing South Florida's fast-growing Haitian population, while celebrating the community's culture and tradition. Each month, studio guests will help navigate critical concerns, including education, health care, and employment, connecting the Haitian diaspora, as well as the new generation of Haitian-Americans, with important community resources. The program will also highlight the colorful Haitian culture and events that make South Florida one the most exciting and diverse destinations in the U.S.

Haitian Voices is part celebration, part community service. Join Gepsie Metellus and WPBT2 as we explore cultural identity and tradition, while connecting viewers to the resources that will help South Florida's immigrant communities grow and flourish.
