Join a team of NYC’s  most gifted educators and organizers to learn how to teach this award video that documents how Dominicans of Haitian descent and Haitians are treated in the Dominican Republic. This video documents the history of the escalating violence against this community. This is especially important in light of the Dominican Tribunal Court decision to strip Dominicans of their citizenship simply because their parents were immigrants from Haiti.

Join other teachers, social justice educators, youth development specialists, community members, and concerned citizens of diverse cultural backgrounds to learn about how to teach this history.
