Human Rights Lawyer
Human rights lawyer Brian Concannon is the Executive Director of the Institute for Justice & Democracy in Haiti (IJDH). IJDH helps Haitian advocates bring their centuries-long struggle for justice to powerful countries abroad where too many decisions about Haitians’ rights are made. IJDH’s cases have included winning an injunction against the Trump Administration’s efforts to cancel TPS for Haitians and representing victims of the UN cholera in Haiti. Brian lived and worked in Haiti for nine years, working with the United Nations, and the Bureau des Avocats Internationaux (BAI), IJDH’s sister organization.
