Ari Moore '22

Learn about the Elbaz Family Post-Graduate Fellowship program and Ari Moore’s experience working with a human rights NGO in São Paulo, Brazil: Conectas Direitos Humanos (Connected Human Rights). Conectas focuses on preventing state violence, strengthening democratic spaces in Brazil, and ensuring socio-environmental rights.

Ari Moore '22 graduated from CMC with a degree in International Relations and the Human Rights, Genocide & Holocaust Studies sequence. He recently moved back from São Paulo, Brazil, where he was working at Conectas Direitos Humanos as an Elbaz Post-Graduate Fellow. Ari’s work with Conectas was largely focused on the defense of socio-environmental rights. With indigenous people under constant threat and the climate crisis growing, his work at Conectas focused on advocating for the strengthening of indigenous rights in Brazil, demanding accountability for environmentally destructive development projects, and spotlighting the gaps between Brazilian environmental protections and standards set by relevant international organizations. Since moving back to the US, he's been working as an educational director and teacher in Los Angeles, with plans of returning to Brazil to pursue a masters in international development. He also tap dances, and is involved with local peace activism.

Ari’s presentation is co-sponsored by the Mgrublian Center for Human Rights and the Elbaz Family Post-Graduate Fellowship Program.
