As part of the 2nd session of the UN Permanent Forum on People of African Descent, the Global Justice Clinic at NYU School of Law invites you to a virtual side event and webinar entitled, “Haitian Migration in the Americas: Combating Anti-Blackness & Building Transnational Solidarity.”

Since the 2010 earthquake in Haiti, Haitian migration has expanded and transformed dramatically. While the United States, Canada and the Dominican Republic were historically primary destination countries, Haitians are now migrating throughout Central and South America, including Chile, Colombia, Panama, and Mexico. Although the country contexts differ, for Haitian migrants there has been one constant: anti-Blackness. In this panel discussion, Haitian migrant rights’ advocates living in countries in North and South America will share about the challenges facing Black migrants and the need for transnational solidarity and collective power-building.
