Climate Change

Haiti's vulnerability to the devastating impacts of climate change and environmental degradation jeopardizes Haitians' livelihoods, food security, infrastructure, physical safety, and more. We advocate for robust responses to environmental crises and mitigation strategies.

Elections and Democracy

As part of the effort to strengthen the social contract among Haitians and particularly between the government of Haiti and the people it serves, the HAWG advocates for fair and timely elections free from intimidation, violence, and voter fraud. HAWG advocates for this within the broader context of democracy which requires more than simply holding elections.
