LATIN AMERICA & THE CARIBBEAN
AJWS works to promote human rights and end poverty in seven countries in Latin America and the Caribbean. From helping earthquake survivors in Haiti rebuild their lives to protecting the land of indigenous communities in Mexico, we support people who are on the frontlines of social change.
AJWS focuses on advancing the civil and political rights of those most affected by inequality in the Dominican Republic, including Haitian migrants and Dominicans of Haitian descent. We also work to enable women, girls and LGBT Dominicans to live with safety, health and dignity.
In Mexico, AJWS focuses on upholding civil and political rights in the face of a repressive government. We defend Mexican communities from corporate interests and corruption, and promote the right to land, food, water and other natural resources that Mexican people depend on for survival.
