    Wyclef Jean will be among several Haitian musicians who will perform at the National Press Club in Washington D.C. on Wednesday, January 26th. The event is set to raise funds for journalists in Haiti. Prime Minister Jean-Max Bellerive will be among the speakers at the Night of Solidarity for Haitian Journalists, which is also meant to raise awareness of the need for a strong, vibrant and free press as Haiti rebuilds from last year's earthquake.

    At least 30 journalists were among around 300,000 people who were killed in the earthquake that struck on January 12th, 2010. Proceeds from a Night of Solidarity will be used to provide social and professional assistance to Haitian journalists and financial assistance to families of journalists killed in the disaster.

    Haitian musicians will perform at the event, which is slated to run from 7 to 10 PM.

    What have you done to support the victims of the Haitian earthquake of a year ago?
