Brazilian democracy depends on a solid, active and plural civil society. Civil Society Organizations Law must guarantee the association and performance of associations, foundations, religious temples and social movements.
“Everyone has the right to associate freely for ideological, religious, political, economic, labor, social, cultural, sports, or other purposes.”American Convention on Human Rights
The law can be used strategically for the construction of equalities. Differences in gender, sexuality, race-ethnicity, socio-economic conditions, religion, national origin and ability can not imply discrimination in treatment or access to goods and services in Brazil.
“All human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights.”Universal Declaration of Human Rights
The survival of humanity depends on a radical change in the way we relate to the rest of nature. In this sense, Socio-Environmental Law must guarantee the protection of indigenous and traditional collective territories and help maintain biodiversity and sociodiversity in Brazil.
“Everyone has the right to an ecologically balanced environment, which is a public good for the people's use and is essential for a healthy life. The Government and the community have a duty to defend and to preserve the environment for present and future generations.”Constitution of the Federative Republic Of Brazil
