Join Haitian and diaspora civic and faith leaders, members of the U.S. House Haiti Caucus, and former Haiti Special Envoy Ambassador Daniel Foote for a discussion of the role of civil society in restoring democracy and security in Haiti. A critical test for the Biden Administration’s Democracy Summit is whether the U.S. is willing to practice what it preaches with its closest neighbors. We will discuss ongoing efforts to change U.S. policy toward Haiti to halt deportations that are destabilizing the country and support a broad civil society-led transition to democracy, human rights, and locally-led development.
