THE STORY:

Witness wrote -

In today's world, almost everyone has a camera in their pocket. From Syria to Brazil to the streets of New York, brave individuals are using their phones to document everything from police brutality, to chemical attacks, to sexual violence. But how do we make sure their videos make a difference?

WITNESS trains and equips activists and citizen journalists around the world to use video safely, ethically, and effectively to fight for human rights. 

Why Now?

While today's crises may seem overwhelming, WITNESS' co-founder Peter Gabriel recognizes the opportunity we have to change our world: 

"We're learning that if we, as a global community, don't like what is, we have to be a part of what can be. With cameras everywhere, we can document and share what's really going on. We can build campaigns with millions - even billions - of others, and we can leverage those numbers to create real change."

Just filming a scene isn't enough. With hundreds of thousands of videos uploaded to YouTube every minute, too many important videos slip through the cracks. Too many videos put victims and bystanders at great risk by reveaing their identities to potentially hostile forces. Too many videos simply can't be verified - leaving them impotent in the fight for justice and accountability, and in the fight against denial. 

By donating to WITNESS, you are helping activists and citizen journalists use video to share their stories with the world and create lasting human rights change. Join our global community and help make the world what we all know it can be.
