Please join Amnesty International USA’s DC National Office for a briefing on Amnesty International’s preliminary findings based on a recent mission to the Dominican Republic carried out from June 14 to June 27. The mission aimed at assessing the situation of people who were deprived of their Dominican nationality by a Dominican Constitutional Court ruling in September 2013. The mission also included advocacy with the Dominican authorities to avoid the expulsions of those individuals.

Amnesty International’s delegates met with authorities, members of the diplomatic community, civil society organizations, and affected populations. AI Delegates documented dozens of cases, and visited the Dominican/Haitian border.

Marselha Gonçalves Margerin, Advocacy Director for the Americas at Amnesty International USA, was part of the delegation and will be able to share its preliminary findings and recommendations.

If you are unable to attend, but wish to participate, you may join the briefing via phone.
