Haiti and the Universal Periodic Review (UPR)

Last year, some NGOs in New York started working with the Haiti UPR process .The UPR reviews the country’s progress in human rights. Several of our congregations there gave us grassroots input for the civil society report. The country review is coming up in November 2016, in Geneva. Prior to this event, a pre-session will take place in Geneva October 3rd-7th. Mrs. Jocelyne Colas, director of the Episcopal Commission for Justice and Peace in Haiti and very experienced as an advocate for human rights in her country, will represent all of us. You may be able to watch some of it on UN Web TV.
