Ever since its beginning, Justiça Global has based its mission on the commitment to social struggles and has sought to act communally, through dialogue and the promotion of plurality.

We believe in the importance of strengthening social movements and working together with local, national, and international organizations to increase civil society participation in a more solid and effective way. Therefore, we engage in several networks and have established strategic partnerships with civil society to create spaces and resources. In addition, we are committed to making our channels available for mobilization around emergencies that affect people and groups whose rights have been violated.

Our relationships are guided by the principles of autonomy, transparency, publicity, and respect for human rights.

National Agenda for Decarceration (Agenda Nacional pelo Desencarceramento)

Brazil holds the disgraceful third place in the ranking of countries with the largest prison population in the world. It is urgently necessary to close the floodgates of the penal system, by adopting effective measures for decarceration and for confronting structural violence, as opposed to the fruitless insistence on custodial sentences. In this sense, we set out to build a popular program of decarceration and demilitarization composed of ten guidelines and a single axis: the reduction of the country’s prison population.
