Press Conference on Human Rights Violations in Dominican Republic – Boston, MA

From Senator Linda Dorcena Forry:

Dear Friend,

As you may already be aware, there is a humanitarian crisis developing in the Dominican Republic.  The current government of the Dominican Republic has recently implemented a series of new naturalization laws specifically aimed at ridding the country of Dominican citizens of Haitian descent.

Massachusetts has always taken a leading role in advocating for human rights around the globe. There is no doubt that these unjustifiable policies effect many of our citizens here.

Therefore, I invite you to attend a press conference tomorrow, Tuesday, June 30 at 12pm noon on the front steps of the State House. We will be joined by several immigration advocacy groups, clergy, leaders of the Haitian and Dominican community, as well as federal, state, and local elected officials. We hope you will be able to come and show your support.

What:                   Press Conference on Human Rights Violations in Dominican Republic

Where:                Front Steps of the State House

When:                  Tuesday, June 30

All the best,


Senator Linda Dorcena Forry
