Summary of the project: I spent a month in Recife helping build positive perceptions of human rights defenders and the work they do.
Mark Dewings from Ogilvy New York spent a month in Brazil working with the human rights network MNDH and the local Brazilian agency MakPlan. Their brief was to decrease the stigma against human rights defenders in Brazil, and this presentation explains how they did that.
