ARTIGO 19 Brasil (ARTICLE 19 Brazil) is a civil society organization established in 2007, and based in São Paulo, which is part of the international Article 19 network, with 9 offices around the world. Created to promote and defend freedom of expression, as stated in the Art 19 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, it has been working on digital rights and protection of journalists through research, policy analysis, training and strategic litigation in the last 15 years in the country. This work has led to proposals on new legislation such as the Marco Civil da Internet and the Access to Information Act, and justice reform debates, as part of the efforts from Brazilian civil society to democratize access to justice and propose policy reforms for the sector.

Through its Legal Reference Center, it has recently started a legal empowerment program for women journalists and artists to increase awareness on freedom of expression, right to information, and the use of legal tools to access justice. We intend to combine legal empowerment practices and justice reform analysis and proposals to tackle the new frontiers of digital life and attacks against freedoms.

In this year will finish my undergrad in Law and in this moment I'm preparing myself to achive my license to work as a lawyer in the nex year too, my goal is to collaborate for the strengthening of human rights in my country through intersectionality.

About my role in my organization, I'm working at Article 19's legal team (Brazil and South America office) since october 2020, first as an intern and now as a legal advisor. Along this time we had the opportunity to develop an amazing initiative with our first legal empowerment course for journalists and artists, in a group formed only by women.

Connecting myself with Namati's courses and dialogue spaces is very important to improve our own projects, share and learning from other experiences and deepen knowledge about how to make real changes in our territory/community.
