Read the op-ed penned by Camila Asano, program director at Conectas Human Rights; and Arquias Cruz, advocacy advisor at Conectas.
Published on Wednesday, December 14, in the newspaper Folha de S.Paulo, the article addresses the need to tackle structural and institutional racism in the country, placing the topic at the heart of public and foreign policy so that Brazil can become an international reference on the antiracist agenda.
“It is clear that social actors committed to the eradication of racial inequalities will not stop reminding the public authorities, on a daily basis, that Brazil needs to commit to the adoption of antiracism as a guiding value in its public policies,” said the experts in the article.
