New president seems to be a decent person so far but I don’t have much hope. This is a good step. Unrelated but i hope he legalizes cannabis and decriminalizes drugs next so the DR can make some money and care for its people. Also they gotta pass some anti discrimination laws the last administration did some truly fucked up things to many dark skinned Dominicans and Haitians

Took 'em that long, huh

I’m baffled by it too

Oh!
Now I remember watching a bunch of docs on child marriage in the US.
It’s quite baffling that child marriage is still accepted and promoted in so many countries to this day.
