This description of Neusa das Dores Pereira's work was prepared when Neusa das Dores Pereira was elected to the Ashoka Fellowship in 2003.
Neusa das Dores Pereira, a lesbian mother and leader of the black women's movement, is bringing a marginalized group–women and youth in prisons–to the attention of her community. Her methodology fosters good relationships between inmates and prison workers, reduces recidivism, helps offenders reintegrate into their families and the labor market, and improves the human rights situation.
