Defend Democracy in Brazil (DDB-NY) is a committee of Brazilian citizens and allies, based in New York City, who got together to defend democracy in Brazil. DDB-NY was formed in February 2016 by artists, scholars, human rights and environmental activists, social movements, political parties, and individuals concerned with the threat to the Brazilian democratic political system and the rule of law in the country. Currently, DDB focuses its efforts on fighting for social and racial justice, and defending democratic institutions in Brazil and the US
