CIVIC TECHNOLOGIES

Learn more about how we develop civic technologies and use data intelligence to expand our impact. 

For more than 10 years, we experiment and develop social technologies to turn Brazil and Latin America into fairer, more inclusive and democratic places. Since very early on, we’ve seen technology as a way to make mobilization, and we’ve developed tools to pressure decision makers in an efficient way, to strengthen our causes and to defend democracy.

That's how tools emerged, like Beta, the first Facebook feminist chatbot; Defezap, a defense system against state violence via WhatsApp; BONDE, an activism platform shared by over 50 Latin American organizations, among many others. Below, we tell a little bit more about each one of them.

Brazil’s technopolitic ecosystem is powerful, whether in civil society, in academia, or in the free software community, we keep learning and contributing to the formation of new tributaries to create digital infrastructures that promote equity, care and justice.
