What would you do if your rights, citizenship, or nationality was taken from you? Thousands of Dominican children are being stripped of their nationality even though they have were born in the Dominican Republic and have been citizens since birth.

Because of a controversial judgment of the Constitutional Court (ruling 168/13), more than 244,000 Dominicans will retroactively lose their citizenship because they are the children of undocumented immigrants. They could also lose access to important social services, such as their education and healthcare. This is in direct violation of Article 15 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights that everyone has the right to a nationality.

This is a dangerous precedent. We respectively call upon leaders to restore full citizenship rights to people affected by ruling 168/13 and address other administrative procedures designed to deny citizenship and full social protection to vulnerable populations. Use your voice to advocate for the thousands of Dominican children who are risk of becoming stateless – because no one should be deprived of their nationality.
