Coletivo Jardim Resistência

Coletivo Jardim Resistêcia


The Jardim Resistência Collective, initially organized by Débora Aguiar and Amanda Timóteo, emerged as a collective of marginal poetry that held soirées around the peripheries of Jaboatão dos Guararapes-SP. In 2017 the group started a process of building demands on guidelines related to maternal health and reproductive rights. Currently Jardim Resistência counts on six militants, mainly black and peripheral, working in the entire metropolitan Pernambuco. The collective works in more than 26 peripheral communities, with black and peripheral social movements and institutions, building and enabling strategic communication actions in the favela, in order to support families headed by black women-mothers, providing basic food aid and hygiene items for families that are in greater social vulnerability.
