TIFF Insider: Artists For Peace & Justice Party

The APJ Team
On Friday September 7th, Artists for Peace & Justice kicked off TIFF 2012 with an exclusive cocktail party at La Société to celebrate the charity. APJ was founded in 2009 by screenwriter, producer and director Paul Haggis.

The organization's goal is to build schools for the youth and children living in the slums of Haiti. By providing them with education, hot meals, clean drinking water and medical treatments, these students receive a higher quality life then they would otherwise have.
