Brandeis students who have ties to Haiti have organized a vigil to be held Wednesday at 6 p.m. in the Shapiro Campus Center atrium.

Students Shaina Gilbert and Napolean Lherisson are organizing the event, which will bring people together for songs, prayers, and fund raising efforts. Lherisson's parents are Haitian, and both students are members of the Brandeis chapter of The Global Haiti Initiative.

There will also be a table in the Shapiro Campus Center atrium throughout the day before the vigil where community members can donate to the university’s relief fund and have the Haitian flag painted on their face in a sign of solidarity.
