As the result of its centralized, exclusive economic model, Brazil has undergone a serious economic, political, and social crisis. The crisis is getting worse because the country is simultaneously undergoing extensive demographic, epidemiological, and technological changes. There is an urgent need to articulate various social groups to challenge and change the ongoing situation. A new historical future has to be established so that a different and less unequal society can emerge and guarantee better living conditions for coming generations.
