CLADE’s General Assembly is the highest-level decision-making body and is composed of all its members.
These are the powers of the General Assembly:

- Set the policies, course of action and program of the campaign.
- Select the Steering Committee;

The assembly gathers every two years. One of them is a mid-term review and the other one is a quadrennial review, covering the full period of the strategic plan. The last quadrennial review Assemblies took place in 2010, when CLADE's statute was approved, and in 2014 and 2018, years in which the Campaign's four-year strategic plans were approved, respectively for the periods 2015-2018 and 2019- 2022.

Commitment against Sexual Exploitation and Abuse
Under no circumstances will staff members, collaborators or partners be involved in cases of human rights violations, including the rights of children and adolescents, as well as any form of sexual abuse or exploitation against people of any age.
Inappropriate or suspicious behavior may be reported by any CLADE collaborator, intern or volunteer, or by any partner or external actor who has knowledge or has been a victim of misbehavior, through the e-mail email@example.com, in a formal or anonymous manner. Whistleblowers may choose to report to CLADE, or any of the means below present in Brazil, which respect the anonymity of the whistleblower, when requested:
- "Disque 100", the official reporting channel of the Ministry of Women, Family and Human Rights, which operates daily, 24 hours a day. Sexual exploitation and abuse of children and adolescents and any other human rights violation can be reported on this number. The phone call is free, anonymous, and can be made from anywhere in Brazil. After the denunciation, the report is forwarded to the city's responsible agencies so that investigations can be started;
- Civil Police "Dial 181". This channel, which also receives information about other crimes, operates daily, 24 hours a day, and the information can be passed on anonymously, without tracing the call. After analysis by the civil police, the information is forwarded for investigation. When a complaint is made, a protocol is given, through which the investigation can be followed up;
- Safernet, a site that receives anonymous reports of human rights violations;
- Disque 100 online, a site that receives reports of inappropriate content found on the Internet, which can also be reported on the disque 100 site, at disque100.gov.br;
- Proteja Brasil, an application created by the United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF) to facilitate reports of violence against children and adolescents. The application can be downloaded on Android and IOS cell phones and tablets. The app provides phone numbers and addresses of police stations, guardianship councils, and other institutions.
Based on the complaints, CLADE-Brazil will monitor the precautionary measures adopted in parallel to the investigative procedures for criminal actions which are the responsibility of the State, Guardianship Councils and Public Ministry of the regions. CLADE-Brazil will act in a formal or anonymous manner, protecting the manifestation of the whistleblower and taking the necessary decisions for the fulfillment of the required corrective actions.
