Nossa Voz is a publication by Casa do Povo. Literally “Our Voice,” the newspaper existed alongside the institution from 1947 to 1964, with texts in Yiddish and Portuguese and an editorial profile aligned with left wing ideals. It was shut down by the military dictatorship, which forced editor-in-chief Hersch Schechter and other contributors into exile. Relaunched in 2014, it continues to dialogue with its historical premises while rethinking its editorial directives.
The editorial committee relies on representatives from a wide variety of areas, meeting regularly to discuss issues concerning the city, memory and artistic practices according to the current political situation.
The publication is distributed free of charge and can be obtained at Casa do Povo during hours of operation, at partner institutions and some commercial establishments in the neighborhood of Bom Retiro in São Paulo.
