Street artist, human rights advocate and survivor Panmela Castro gave us a first-person update from Brazil on how the country is handling the pandemic - from concerns of inequitable healthcare and crowded housing, to increased domestic and gender-based violence. But despite it all, Panmela is energized by the artistic options still available and the community that advocacy can build. She spoke with Vital Voices President and CEO Alyse Nelson about her portrait in the new Vital Voices: 100 Women Using their Power to Empower, what the crisis is showing about leadership and her hopes from the future.
