The magazine “Brazil Rights”, edited by journalist and director Bruno Torturra, testifies the importance of supporting civil society organizations by sharing the stories of some of the human rights defenders supported by the Fund in this last decade.
Ten journalists were invited to write for this edition of our magazine and through their texts they showed that the partnership between the Fund and these actors enabled the fight against slavery; support to LGBT groups victims of discrimination; the alliance between mothers who have lost their children to violence; the search for paternal recognition; a prominent participation of Black women, men and youth; the struggle for indigenous rights; and coping with the impacts of major infrastructure projects and mega sports events.
“Human rights is one of the most abused terms, nowadays. I believe this can be changed through the spreading of stories and the rise of a new way to understand the country”, said Torturra on the publication.
The magazine’s themes, which can be read here were discussed during a round table meeting, which counted on the participation of journalists, counselors, advisers, former members of the Board and the staff of Brazil Fund.
