CPT and Reporter Brasil - Harriet Tubman Award Winner from Free the Slaves, Freedom Awards
Comissão Pastoral da Terra (CPT) and Reporter Brasil from Brazil share this year’s Harriet Tubman Community Award. Together they have played a major role in freeing thousands of people from slavery and have harnessed the power of the marketplace to make slaveholding unprofitable.
The two organizations have found a way of collaborating that builds upon each group’s strengths. CPT operates in rural areas and is fueled by a profound belief in God. Reporter Brasil is urban and operates in the world of investigative journalism with a profound belief in the power of knowledge to change the world. They share a common commitment to freedom for every human being, and to helping each sector of society that is touched by slavery to become part of the solution.
