Police in Brazil kill 8 people a day.  

Moral Monday CT is going to share lessons from the American Black Lives Matter movement along with other national leaders and to witness at the request of Brazil Police Watch. This journey affirms the connection between the recent police shootings in the United States and the on-going police violence against civilians in Brazil.

Moral Monday CT will stand in solidarity with the people of Brazil, won't you stand with us?

The Connecticut Black Lives Matter organization along with Brazil Police Watch are going to Rio de Janeiro to be in solidarity with activists and victims of police violence. 

The Brazilian police have a long history of violence against the Afro-Brazilian community. We are going to affirm that Black Lives Matter Everywhere.

Our goal is to raise $5,000 before July 28th to send Bishop John L. Selders, Jr. CLS, D.D. and Lady Pamela Selders to Brazil.
