Jocelyn McCalla is the Executive Director of the National Coalition for Haitian Rights (NCHR). McCalla has long been involved in international human rights and U.S. policy analysis and advocacy, first as Associate Director of the NCHR from 1986-1988, and then from 1988 to March 2002 as the NCHR's Executive Director.
