ActionAid is a global movement of people working together to further human rights and defeat poverty for all.

On 2013, the Dominican Republic’s Constitutional Court (TC 168-13) revoked citizenship of Dominicans with Haitian descent, going as far back as 1929. This controversial ruling has sparked global outrage. 250,000 people are at risk of being deported from Dominican soil. 

This is a story of a family who have been living and working in Dominican Republic for ten years. Their youngest daughter, born and raised in the country was deprived of having any legal document to prove her citizenship.

Facing racism and fearing for their lives they have decided to go back to Haiti.
