Brazil Has 160 Organizations to Fight Racism. 75% Have no Money or Personnel

    The organizations that promote racial equality in the Brazilian states and municipalities are facing problems: 75% lack adequate structures, human resources, and budget funds, and 30% have no funds at all.

    These conclusions, presented on Wednesday, June 21, are from a study conducted by the University of Brasí­lia (UnB), at the request of the Special Secretariat of Policies to Promote Racial Equality (SEPPIR).

    The unprecedented study, which was done this year to evaluate the goals, problems, and results of governmental policies implemented in Brazil, indicates that 160 organizations were created to promote racial equality after the establishment of the SEPPIR in 2003.

    According to the coordinator of the study, Sadi dal Rosso, this growth does not mean that the organizations are efficient or that the goals are being accomplished.

    According to the head of the SEPPIR, Minister Matilde Ribeiro, the individuals involved in promoting racial equality in the states and municipalities "are still not prepared to develop policies."

    "We must invest more every day to make these actions efficacious and part of the country’s public agenda," she said.

    The study revealed that 85% of the municipal administrators are activists from the black movement.

    The preliminary results of the study were announced at the closing ceremony of the 6th Intergovernmental Forum for the Promotion of Racial Equality, which was held in Brasí­lia.

    The full reports, which contain more than 350 pages, will be presented by the UnB and the SEPPIR in two weeks.
