I'm Moses St. Louis, a fellow MoveOn member in Port Jefferson Station, NY, and a Haitian-American.
The Dominican Republic constitutional court recently stripped Haitians and Dominicans of Haitian descent of their citizenships—and many of their rights.1 That's why I started a petition to the Dominican Republic government and President Danilo Medina Sánchez, which says:
I'm Haitian American and have family living in the Dominican Republic who are affected by this ruling.
We want the world to know how unjust this is. Can you join us in speaking out against ethnic cleansing?

This petition was created on MoveOn's online petition site, where anyone can start their own online petitions. Moses St Louis didn't pay us to send this email—we never rent or sell the MoveOn.org list.
