AWID celebrates the organisers of Marcha das Mulheres Negras for their leadership and vision
On Wednesday, 18th of November 2015, thousands of Black women from across Brazil and their allies will march through the streets of Brasilia. The Marcha das Mulheres Negras is a march against racism and violence and in support of wellbeing, and represents years of collective organizing by Black women as part of broader Black peoples’ movements in Brazil.
The Association for Women’s Rights in Development (AWID) stands in solidarity with Black women’s movements in Brazil, and is proud to have supported activists from the African continent and diaspora to participate in this national action with global implications for rights and justice.
We celebrate the organisers of Marcha das Mulheres Negras for their leadership and vision, and look forward to continued engagement in our collective work to advance women’s human rights and gender justice.
