Mission

WITNESS uses video and online technologies to open the eyes of the world to human rights violations. We empower people to transform personal stories of abuse into powerful tools for justice, promoting public engagement and policy change. WITNESS provides hands-on training to human rights defenders in video advocacy and supports productions with a measurable impact in changing human rights policies and practices. We are pioneers in exploring the intersection between technology and human rights.
