“The Walk of Freedom”
This video captures Diop‘s first steps as a free person. In Mauritania, he lived in a slave-caste family. Now, he is free.
There is still a long road to go for Diop to win asylum and permanent freedom, but today his family is rejoicing and we are too.
Thank you to Houleye Thiam for her tireless work in getting Diop out of jail and home to his family. Thank you to Haitian Bridge Alliance for picking Diop up from Adelanto and taking care of him until he flies to Ohio.
Thank you to our angel donors who stepped in with $2,000 and challenged us to match it, pushing us over the finish line to raise Diop‘s bond money. You did it!
We are all in this together.
