I am Jocelyn McCalla. I provide management, fundraising and development, grassroots campaign consulting services to public and private sector entities, for profit and non-profits alike. Over the years, I have developed a proven track record of accomplishments in developing winning strategies and collaboration with a wide range of leaders, governmental, intergovernmental and non-governmental organizations of various ideological persuasions and interests. I possess excellent writing, analytical, strategic planning, organizational development, public speaking and media skills. I have thorough knowledge of international human rights, immigration and immigrants rights issues, HIV and AIDS, lawmaking and policymaking in Washington, DC and relevant policy processes used by international institutions such as the UN, the OAS and affiliated bodies. I am strongly committed to teamwork. Professional associations have included the African Jesuit AIDS Network, the National Coalition for Haitian Rights, the South East Asian Resource Action Center, Human Rights Watch, Human Rights First, Strategic Solutions Washington, the National Immigration Forum, the New Jersey Immigration Policy Network and theHaitian Studies Association among others. I am fluent in English, French and Haitian Creole.
If you are looking for expertise on Haiti, in particular immigration, refugee protection, human rights, children’s rights, Haiti-Dominican Republic relations and its bewildering politics, you have come to the right place. Over the years, I have developed a singular reputation as a credible witness and advocate. I am available for interviews, speaking engagements and consulting. So, don’t wait, get in touch.
I invite you to get in touch with me directly via email or via phone at (862) 452-7196. I promise to respond as promptly as I can to your request. This said, you can browse through the pages of this web site which feature my reflections on contemporary issues and events that pique my interest, as well as pages that feature statements and monographs that I have made or written over the years.
