James Green recently co-wrote, "Recommendations on Brazil to President Biden and the New Administration," which provides a background analysis of Brazil’s current situation, focusing on ten main areas with a list of policy recommendations.
The U.S. Network for Democracy in Brazil is a decentralized, democratic, non-partisan national network with three main objectives: (1) Educate the U.S. public about the current situation in Brazil; (2) Defend social, economic, political, and cultural advances in Brazil; and (3) Support social movements, community organizations, NGOs, universities, and activists, etc., who face diverse threats in the current political climate. In total, over 1,500 people in 234 colleges and universities in 45 states throughout the United States have joined the Network. The Network has fostered the implementation of a Washington Brazil Office (WBO). The WBO works on issues related to human rights and the environment in Brazil, seeking to analyze policies and their consequences and promote democratic debate toward social and environmental justice in the country.
