Mr. Campusano will explain how thousands of persons, mostly of Haitian descent, were made stateless (left without official citizenship in any country) when a 2004 immigration law and the 2010 Dominican constitution did away with birthright citizenship and a 2013 constitutional court ruling made that standard retroactive. Mr. Campusano will describe the legal, social, and economic hardships that these stateless persons face, including the difficulties in obtaining birth and identification documents, and the threat of deportation. Mr. Campusano will also discuss how international and local human rights organizations have responded to the Dominican government's policies. The Power Point-based lecture will be given in Spanish with English translation.

The Interdisciplinary Latino Research Initiative

The Interdisciplinary Latino Research Initiative of the Center for Health Equity invites you (faculty member, student, staff of any Pitt department or other universities) to join us in networking and light refreshments on Friday Sep. 11, 2015, 1-2 pm in Room 110, Parran Hall (Graduate School of Public Health, 130 DeSoto Street, Oakland). We also hold "focused writing sessions" in the same space, on Fridays Sep. 18 and 25, Oct. 16 and 30, Nov. 20, and Dec. 11 and 18.


What is focused writing? It is "protected time" so you can write with no interruptions. Bring your laptop and lots of energy to keep writing all morning on something you need to do: grant, manuscript, class paper, or any other thing. We give support to each other and yes, we have coffee and snacks. For questions, email Patricia Documet at pdocumet@pitt.edu.
