Movimenta Caxias Collective
Movimenta Caxias Collective is a collective founded in 2017 by human rights defenders from Baixada Fluminense, in the lowland region of Rio de Janeiro state. The collective is divided into different areas of activity, such as education, culture, communication, solidarity actions and the fight against racism. It also carries out its work in several neighbourhoods and favelas, particularly in the region of Baixada Fluminense. Since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, the collective has been carrying out solidarity actions, such as distributing food baskets and hygiene products, and hosting people at its premises during cold nights. Through its work in defence of human rights, the collective has already provided support to more than 45,000 families facing social risk and in vulnerable conditions.
