Live IJDH Cholera Teleconference

Join IJDH’s legal team for a live conference call on Wednesday, November 20, on recent developments in our landmark litigation to hold the UN accountable for introducing cholera to Haiti.  

Cholera has killed over 8,300 and sickened over 684,000 Haitians since October 2010, when the UN indisputably and recklessly introduced the bacteria to Haiti’s principal river. Last month, BAI and IJDH filed a groundbreaking class action lawsuit against the UN in federal court in New York, seeking damages and life-saving water and sanitation for the thousands of victims.

IJDH Director Brian Concannon and Staff Attorney Beatrice Lindstrom will be sharing about our advocacy strategies, why we filed the case in the U.S., and where we plan to go from here.  Come with your questions for the question and answer section.

Date: Wednesday, November 20, 5-6 pm EST (2-3 pm PT)
Conference call number:  641-715-3200; Access Code 98027#
