Curitiba: quotas for blacks and indigenous people in public service

“Invisibles” in the city, blacks and indigenous practically do not exist in the cadres of the municipal public service in Curitiba. There are only 21 people who declare themselves indigenous (0.09%) and 932 black (3%). Those who say they are white are 19,951 (78%), out of a table of 25,265 servers.

It is this distortion that a bill by Councilor Carol Dartora (PT) seeks to correct, reserving 20% ​​of seats for black and indigenous people. However, on the eve of Black Consciousness Day (20), the PL is still awaiting the opinion of the Public Service Commission before going to the plenary.

The inequality of Brazilian society is reflected in access to a public career. According to a survey by the Institute for Applied Economic Research (Ipea), in the Diplomacy career, only 5.9% are black and black; within the federal audit and the National Treasury Attorney’s Office, black women and black men occupy, respectively, 12.3% and 14.2%.

In Curitiba, the difficulty of admission is even greater, according to the numbers. For the councilor who authored the project, “Curitiba brings in its wake the marks of a city that still makes its roots in Afro-Brazilian history invisible, ignoring that it has 19.7% of the population that declares itself black, increasing this percentage to 21.12% when the indigenous population is included, according to 2017% IBGE data”.

Carol Dartora’s PL creates the system of racial quotas in public examinations for the city of Curitiba, with the reservation of places for black people and indigenous peoples. Currently, the project is awaiting the opinion of the Public Services Commission. After this procedure, it will be ready to be included in the voting agenda of the City Council of Curitiba.

On the other hand, Dartora finds reasons to hope that the project will be approved. She believes that “on the 20th, despite not yet having the vote on the racial quotas project, we can celebrate the performance of the mandate of the first black councilor elected in Curitiba and what this symbolizes and produces in the structure of society, from visibility and representation to the presentation of bills and other agendas that serve the black population”, he thinks.
