Racism is deeply rooted in our culture. It is so widespread that it normalizes and perpetuates historical practices within a society structured on inequality, favoring some over others.
It is not enough “not to be racist”, it is necessary for society to identify racist practices and recognize the advantages gained from a system historically harmful to some groups, in order to stop reproducing them.
For this reason, we are going to support Afro-Brazilian organizations from any region of Brazil that develop and implement initiatives focused on combating racism and discrimination, which the black population faces on a daily basis.
The resources made available by Grupo Carrefour Brasil may only be destined to:
● Campaigns and social awareness actions to combat racism;
● Creation of anti-racist content;
● Anti-racist actions and projects;
● Actions and projects that value black identity and culture.
Registration is open to any civil society Afro-Brazilian organization, created and managed by black people and with a proven track record of least one year. Proven experience in projects related to racial issues, focusing on the black population, is expected.
For the purposes of this notice, “organizations” are understood to be any association, non-profit organization and movements/collectives/groups of people organized to act in the above-mentioned cause.
Registration closed on June 30, 2021.
If you have any questions, please contact us by email [email protected], Monday to Friday, from 14:00 to 18:00 (Brasilia time).
On the night of November 19, 2020, João Alberto Silveira Freitas was killed on the premises of our store in Passo D'Areia, in Porto Alegre/RS, in an act that does not represent and is not consistent with Carrefour's values.
On this website, we reinforce the actions we are taking in view of this fact and the commitments made to society and to our body of more than 100,000 employees throughout Brazil. With the objective of continuing to evolve as a company and contributing to the fight against structural racism in Brazil.
