Description & History
Cidadao Global aims to work collectively with Brazilian immigrants and the larger immigrant community to advance human rights.
Our core work focuses on securing the basic human rights people need to live healthy and productive lives.
We engage in political mobilization, community education and leadership development. Through our programs and policy campaigns we give a voice to Brazilian immigrants in national policy debates on immigration and build power in the community.
Finally, we provide services such as ESL classes, computer classes, and legal referrals, in order to empower the community to increase its own leadership and promote civic engagement through volunteerism.
