Cassandre Theano

By Bianca Silva

If there’s a word that describes international human rights lawyer Cassandre Theano, it’s tenacious. Her desire to make positive change in society is clear. Born in New York and raised in Haiti, Theano grew up witnessing the injustices being committed firsthand and seeing people not have the ability to fight back.

Pursuing a career in the legal field as a result was a natural path for her. As an international human rights lawyer and advocate, she focuses on women’s rights and citizenship rights. Theano speaks to The Haitian Times on the work that’s shaped her into the person she is today.
