Update on Haiti Elections Crisis

About This Webinar

As allegations of fraud and proof of such mounted, Haiti's Provisional Electoral Council released final results for the first round of presidential elections. Daily protests and calls for fair, democratic elections haven't stopped and some are even calling for a transitional government to hold honest elections. Join us as we discuss what has happened since the August 9th round of elections, our work supporting Haitians' demands, and what we may expect of the round scheduled for December 27th.

Here's some background info that may be useful before the webinar: http://haitielection2015.blogspot.com/2015/12/haiti-elections-news-roundup-december-11.html

Featured Presenters
Webinar hosting presenter IJDH Boston
We work with the peo­ple of Haiti in their non-violent strug­gle for the con­sol­i­da­tion of con­sti­tu­tional democ­racy, jus­tice and human rights, by dis­trib­ut­ing objec­tive and accu­rate infor­ma­tion on human rights con­di­tions in Haiti, pur­su­ing legal cases, and coop­er­at­ing with human rights and sol­i­dar­ity groups in Haiti and abroad.

IJDH draws on its founders’ internationally-acclaimed suc­cess accom­pa­ny­ing Haiti’s poor major­ity in the fields of law, med­i­cine and social jus­tice activism. We seek the restora­tion of the rule of law and democ­racy in the short term, and work for the long-term sus­tain­able change nec­es­sary to avert Haiti’s next crisis.
