This is an audio update from Meena Jagannath, BAI Legal Fellow. As the legal fellow focusing on the Rape Accountability and Prevention Project (RAPP), Meena works closely with Haitian grassroots groups to create mechanisms that hold perpetrators of gender-based violence accountable and that transform the social context underling the vulnerability of poor Haitian women.
In this podcast, Meena gives an update after a meeting with the Haitians Women’s Ministry. The meeting offered a forum for Haitians to critique, comment on, and improve a newly proposed law dealing with violence against women.
We hope you are enjoying these updates from our staff on the ground in Haiti. Projects like RAPP could not exist without your support, so thank you!
Meena Jagannath recently graduated from the University of Washington School of Law where she was a William H. Gates Public Service Law Scholar. After having been a human rights activist for over ten years in such areas as transnational justice, women’s rights and immigration, Meena is now using her legal expertise in BAI’s Port-au-Prince office.
