Self-care and an end to violence against activists. These were the themes that permeated the first national meeting on the well-being of women human rights defenders, held in the first week of June. The meeting also saw the creation of a Brazilian network of organizations and activists to continue the themes. "The event and the creation of the network are important innovations in a context of many social mobilizations and violence against activists," explains ELAS Executive Coordinator Kaká Verdade.
