This month’s member spotlight features the work of the Instituto de Defesa do Direito a Defesa (Institute for the Defense of the Right to Defence, IDDD, in Brazil) through an interview with @MarinaDias, the organization’s Executive Director. Marina is a lawyer by training and deeply committed to social justice, and she is one of the eight 2019 Legal Empowerment Leadership Course Awardees.
During the online interview, @MarinaDias catches us up on how IDDD has adapted to the COVID-19 pandemic, her experience at the 2019 Legal Empowerment Leadership Course, and shares useful insight that she has learned in her legal empowerment journey.
