PROJECT

The Maré of Rights project seeks to ensure and expand access to rights and to interfere with social practices that make the approach to justice more difficult. This project offers, through social and legal assistance, reception and guidance for justice and guarantee of rights. For cases of violations of fundamental rights from the Public Security policy, our team conducts follow-up and dialogue with the institutions responsible for the service, such as Public Defender and Public Prosecutor. In addition to individual assistance, Maré of Rights also acts identifying and addressing the demands of the residents. For this, articulations are promoted with the public authorities, qualifying public policies and access to rights in Maré.
