Taciana Gouveia, projects coordinator at Brazil Fund, visited supported organizations in Rio de Janeiro, in November. The visited groups work with issues such as the militarization of favelas and impacts caused by UPPs (Pacifying Police Units) in the lives of young black people; the rights of children and adolescents; the rights of the LGBT population; and the right to religious freedom for people of religious communities.
