Digital Care and activist infrastructures in Brazil: from servers to technical assistance

None
Recent events in the Brazilian political and social scene have highlighted the need to work on issues of digital care by social movements, activist groups and NGOs operating in the national context. This work, however, faces several challenges, such as: - The scarcity of technical staff working at the intersection of technology and human rights within organizations; - The scarcity of activist groups working to support organizations in relation to server administration and the use of online and secure collaborative work tools; - The lack of a structured network of people who can provide technical assistance services to human rights organizations; - The lack of specific funding for infrastructure development and technical assistance. This session aims to discuss these challenges and think about possibilities for action in the Brazilian context, and will have the participation of digital care activists, members of human rights organizations and philanthropic funds and foundations.
