While the rest of the world was engulfed in panic and division at the Covid-19 pandemic, a crisis was emerging in Haiti. Due to issues within their election system, the once strong, slavery-ending Haiti parliament dissolved. According to Georgette Mulheir, as President Jovenel Moise, whose term was to end at the beginning of this year, remains in office and rules by decree, a call to action has been constructed by Defend Haiti’s Democracy (DHD).
Founded by global leader and activist human rights defendant Georgette Mulheir, Defend Haiti’s Democracy follows up on Georgette’s expertise: leading global change and transforming systems of care. In 2018, Georgette led an emergency response program to reunite children separated from their families at the US/Mexico border.

Georgette was also given a Tribeca Disruptive Innovation award and was named one of the world’s 30 most influential social workers. But her work doesn’t stop there.
