RENE SILVA

25 – BRASIL – Freedom of Speech

At 11 years-old, Rene created the first media to share information and stories about his favela written by and for the community, “Voz das Comunidades”. He and his team of 16 journalists work on telling the story of inequalities, racism and resilience from the inside out. In addition to communication, they also produce events for and in the favelas. Rene believes in community journalism and peer-to-peer resilience.

« We end up being also an agent of local transformation, through our action help the residents to change their reality a little. we’re here trying to live with dignity inside the favelas. »
