Bureau des Avocats Internationaux (BAI)
The Bureau des Avocats Internationaux (BAI) has helped victims prosecute human rights cases, trained Haitian lawyers and spoken out on justice issues since 1995. BAI and the Institute for Justice & Democracy in Haiti (IJDH) are a partnership of Haitian and US human rights advocates supporting the Haitian people in their struggle to achieve universal human rights, access to a just legal system, social justice, a society without violence, and the right to participate fully in choosing their government. Using models like the US civil rights movement, they are active in the courts, both in Haiti and internationally, in the streets and in poor neighborhoods. They work in partnership with grassroots movements, to transform the structural injustices that stand in the way of stability and prosperity for the majority of Haitians.
