MARÉ DEVELOPMENT NETWORKS ASSOCIATION (RJ)
Redes de Desenvolvimento da Maré is a civil society institution that produces knowledge, develops projects and actions to ensure effective public policies that improve the lives of the 140 thousand residents of the 16 favelas of Maré. Redes da Maré has been operating for more than 20 years through four axes considered to be structural to improve the quality of life and guarantee basic rights of the population of Maré. Link: www.redesdamare.org.br. The process that led to the creation of Redes da Maré began in 1997, based on the initiative of residents and former residents from some of the 16 favelas that make up Maré and other parts of the city of Rio de Janeiro. The majority of this group was part of the population of less than 0.5% who managed to have access to university in the region and who also participated in social and community movements organized to fight for certain basic rights, such as: education, health, culture, sanitation, public lighting, security, among others. In 2007, the institution was formalized with this name 'Redes da Maré', based on the understanding that the exercise of citizenship by residents in the city must be based on a comprehensive and procedural project that values the social role of citizens, their collective actions and that has, as an assumption, respect for differences and diversity, as well as criticism of social inequalities currently existing in the country and in Rio de Janeiro. In about 40 social projects, we directly benefit more than 4 thousand residents, in addition to their families and neighbors. In the field of art and culture, we work to democratize the various artistic languages as elements for local development and for the symbolic resignification of Maré.

IT'S OUR COLOR (SC)
É Da Nossa Cor is a social initiative that was born in February 2014, with the aim of promoting debate, self-esteem and protagonism through Afro-Brazilian culture. Conceived by Mathizy Pinheiro, together with Djavan Nascimento, where they realized, from the outburst of the children stating that if they could choose, they would not be black, but blondes with blue eyes. They are residents of Monte Serrat, a remnant quilombo community, being the second community in Florianópolis with the largest contingent of Afro population. With this, recognizing conflicts experienced in childhood, they began through culture to emphasize the importance of the history and contribution of African-Brazilian and African-Diasporic culture to the world, with workshops on affirmative cinema, dance, percussion and singing. Understanding Afro-Brazilian culture in addition to artistic modality, but as an appreciation of the tradition and history of a people based on their civilizing values. And so, understanding Racism as a violence that impacts on the subjective, relationships and structures generating social exclusion, the initiative seeks to promote social inclusion of children and adolescents through Afro-Brazilian culture, protagonism and self-esteem. As a way to promote social inclusion, cultural workshops are held, tours for them to have access to different social spaces, as well as promoting presentations, where Afro-Brazilian history and culture can be presented as a space for everyone and the appreciation of Afro culture. - diasporic is done in a light and playful way. The initiative currently has larger proportions, and already manages to propose some punctual actions for larger audiences with artistic presentations and open events / workshops, however, it is still a challenge to build ways to make it self sustainable and expand the capacity to accommodate more children, as well as promoting other necessary actions, and with that it has been trying to build itself as a social impact business. We currently have an initiative management team, involving Psychologist, Social Worker, Business Manager and Systems Analyst proposing different actions in three central pillars of action: Access to law; Protagonism and Self-Esteem through Afro-Brazilian Culture; Development Opportunities. Objective: To promote healthy and non-violent actions and methodologies to combat racism with children and adolescents from Monte Serrat through Afro-Brazilian culture.

Despite the repercussions, many professionals were dismissed without salary or benefits and are already experiencing difficulties. “When we found that some of these women had been released without pay, and that they are the sole providers of their homes, the need arises to take a step further and try to do something that minimizes the effects of the pandemic on these women's lives,” he says.
