Paul Haggis can no longer be found on many parts of the website for the Artists for Peace and Justice, a non-profit organization he founded in 2009.
Haggis was listed as a member of the Board of Directors on APJ’s website as recently as last month. If you visit the site now, he is no longer there.
There was also a letter from Haggis on the “Who We Are” page, but that’s gone as well.
APJ says they are “a non-profit organization that encourages peace and social justice and addresses issues of poverty around the world. Our immediate goal is to serve the poorest communities in Haiti with programs in education, healthcare, and dignity through the arts.”
Haggis has been accused of sexual assault and filed a preemptive lawsuit against one accuser. In his lawsuit, Haggis made mention of his charitable work by referencing his “extensive charitable efforts, which support thousands of children in impoverished communities.”
We reached out to the charity for comment — so far, no word back.
