IJDH is seeking a dynamic and creative Development Coordinator to lead efforts to raise the resources that IJDH and its sister organization, the Bureau des Avocats Internationaux (BAI), need to support Haitians fighting for their democracy and human rights.
In a new opinion piece in the Miami Herald, BAI's Mario Joseph and IJDH's Brian Concannon comment on calls for international military intervention as Haiti faces crisis. "Instead of troops, [Haitians] want the United States to simply stop propping up the corrupt, repressive Haitian government...."
The international community championed the establishment of Haiti’s garment industry that perpetuates the exploitation of workers by foreign companies. Now, as those companies announce mass layoffs, workers’ livelihoods are at risk.
Join IJDH, Haiti Response Coalition, and allies for a Haiti Advocacy Campaign to call on the US government to stop supporting Haiti’s repressive and corrupt government, so that a Haitian-led solution to the crisis can emerge.
The Institute for Justice and Democracy in Haiti is a U.S.-based human rights non-profit organization. Established in 2004, it is a partnership of human rights advocates in Haiti and the U.S., dedicated to tackling the root causes of injustice that impacts basic human rights in Haiti.
