Violence in Haiti From US Arms

February 08, 2024
By Tracy Abler, Justice Coordinator

Violence in Haiti is largely due to firearms originating in the United States

Tell your U.S. Representative to support the ARMAS Act, which would address gun trafficking from the US to Latin America and the Caribbean. 

Email your representative and ask that they support Rep. Joaquin Castro’s (D-TX) ARMAS Act of 2023, a bill that will disrupt arms trafficking by reestablishing oversight of U.S. gun exports for greater transparency and accountability. This bill also helps to address the root causes of migration and the way that U.S. policies and practices contribute to instability in Latin American and Caribbean countries.
