A racist policy of ethnic cleansing in the Dominican Republic (DR) threatens a quarter of a million DR citizens with deportation to Haiti. Second and third generation Dominicans of Haitian descent have been stripped of citizenship and declared "migrants," and are being threatened with deportation. Vigilante mobs and legal authorities alike are pushing Black DR residents out of their homes and taking their property. Anyone who is Black and under the age of 85 may be classified as Haitian, even if they were born in the DR and have no ties to Haiti, including people who have worked for 50 years on Dominican sugar cane plantations. They all are being expelled from the country and made stateless.

The US government is allowing this to happen by not putting economic pressure on the DR. Join us along with individuals and organizations across the country, the Caribbean and the globe, to demand the Dominican Republic reverse its unjust and racist law, stop forced expulsion of its citizens of Haitian descent, and hold those attacking Black people in their homes and on the streets to account.

What you can do:

*Join Tuesday’s protest outside the DR Consulate in Glendale.

*Call or e-mail the Dominican Embassy in your country. For the Embassy in Washington, DC:
