In conjunction with a rally and vigil demanding respect for human rights of Haitian-descended Dominicans, the Haitian American Lawyers Association of New York (HALANY) delivered a letter to the Dominican Consulate General. In it, HALANY and the co-signers (including IJDH) express concern about recent judicial and governmental decisions in the DR, as well as anti-Haitian acts in DR. They also urge the Dominican Republic government to respect its domestic and international human rights obligations, like the American Convention on Human Rights.
