Draft logo is attached (palm) - NOTE: this logo will serve for initial communications about our group. It will be replaced later by a logo that will (hopefully) use an original image created by the ATIS Matemwa Haitian women's collective. This image (derived from the Poto Mitan 'centerpost' woman building block of society concept) will then transformed into a logo for our initiative by Julie Sutherland, member and graphic designer.
