According to information obtained by the General Coordination for the Defense of the Rights of Children and Adolescents, the Ministry of Human Rights, currently under the hands of Damares Alves, has not invested a penny in actions to combat pedophilia.

The Coordination stated that it is responsible for formulating and articulating actions to prevent and confront sexual violence and violations of the rights of children and adolescents, but that the ministry “does not develop specific actions to confront pedophilia”.

Damares, at the head of the agenda since 2019, defends the fight against pedophilia and said that the“great challenge today is sexual violence against children in Brazil”.With information from Época.

With more than R$ 333 million, Damares Alves did not “get” funds for LGBT+ policies.
