The second round of elections in Brazil is on October 28, 2018. In the wake of rampant acts of violence against racial, gender, sexual, and religious minorities and proliferating fake news intended to catalyze hatred of the other, it has never been more important in recent history to gather as a community and reflect on the dangers facing Brazilian democracy than at this very moment. All members of the community, including Bay Area residents, visitors, and UC Berkeley affiliates, are invited to an open forum to express their thoughts and discuss the current political crisis.
