The Institute for Justice & Democracy in Haiti (IJDH)works with the people of Haiti in their non-violent struggle for the return and consolidation of constitutional democracy, justice and human rights, by distributing objective and accurate information on human rights conditions in Haiti, pursuing legal cases, and cooperating with human rights and solidarity groups in Haiti and abroad. IJDH draws on its founders\' internationally-acclaimed success accompanying Haiti\'s poor majority in the fields of law, medicine and social justice activism. We seek the restoration of the rule of law and democracy in the short term, and work for the long-term sustainable change neccesary to avert Haiti\'s next crisis.
