I'm running the NY Marathon. And, losing a few toenails in the process. But it's for an good cause: I'm raising $3000 for WITNESS, an organization that helps spur real change by shining light on human rights abuses. Won't you contribute and help me spur at least $3000 in change? Thanks!
Co-founded by musician and activist Peter Gabriel in 1992, WITNESS uses video to open the eyes of the world to human rights violations. WITNESS partners with organizations around the world to bring the power of video into their existing campaigns and advance human rights causes. Videos from these collaborations have helped shed light on the systemic repression of ethnic minorities in Burma, persecute recruiters of child soldiers in the Democratic Republic of Congo and pass the first law protecting elders from abuse in the US.
