Georgette Mulheir and The Passion For Service
Defend Haiti’s Democracy is a global group of human rights experts and activists. The goal of Georgette Mulheir establishing DHD is to garner international awareness and support for the people of Haiti. Ongoing political crisis in Haiti has not received significant attention through media outlets. Over the past three years, there has been an intensifying conflict between Haitian citizens and the collapsed government. With the current President of Haiti leading by decree, says Georgette Mulheir, authoritarianism is present and human rights are being abused. A recent report released by the International Human Rights Clinic reveals evidence of government-sanctioned killings, kidnappings, and many other crimes. These crimes are in direct violation of human rights; and this information will be presented during a conference aimed to advance the country’s possible crisis solutions.
