Baptiste, who announced her DRP on August 23, 2012, will take her presentation to the place where the largest number of Vincentians reside, in an attempt to spread awareness of her party as “New Hope from Service to the People” for governance in SVG, as well as to lobby for their support.

Speaking of her plans, the youngest political party leader in SVG indicated that she will give the feature presentation at a town hall meeting, scheduled for 7:30 p.m. on Saturday, October 5, 2013, at the Friends of Crown Heights Community Center. Baptiste explained that the decision to visit the diaspora this early in her party’s existence is testimony of the importance the DRP places on people’s participatory power (ppp) which is one of the DRP’s watch phrases.

“Vincentians in the diaspora are never to be treated as second thought since they are as much a part of the development of our country as are residents living on the islands which make up our state. It is a policy of the DRP to engage the people’s participation from the very beginning.”

The first woman political leader of SVG explained that the Vincentian diaspora can expect to hear about her party’s philosophy and some of its plans for governance of St Vincent and the Grenadines. The DRP founder, who hosts the weekly television programme “Serving the People”, and is also known for her active role in humanitarian efforts for Vincentians, is also requesting donations from persons attending the meeting on October 5. Baptiste is inviting the public to follow the New York town hall meeting from 8 p.m. via WEFM 99.9 FM or via live internet TV link at
