On September 10, a Joint Parliamentary Front in Defense of Civil Society Organizations (CSOs) was launched in Congress. The Front will monitor the study of bills for the promotion of the right to association and citizen participation. It is made up of 210 legislators from different parties and has an advisory council comprised of 8 organizations. It is chaired by PT deputy Afonso Florence. The creation of these fronts is used by legislators to organize the legislative work and facilitate consensus building. The launch came after a series of measures by Bolsonaro for the simplification of the State that reduced civil participation in government bodies.
