“Sometimes when we are in our communities, we feel the weight of the world on our shoulders. The training showed we are not alone – and that there is much more strength, energy [and] creativity…in the different ways people are fighting.”

WITNESS trains people all over the world to use video to create human rights change. We do this through in-person trainings, how-to videos, hands-on curricula and step-by-step toolkits. We develop resources that enable activists to be safer, more effective and better informed.
We have a twenty-year track record of creating human rights change. Together with our grassroots partners we have changed laws, reversed policies and held perpetrators accountable.

“WITNESS’ materials are extremely important for activists filming in Syria because they address realities in the field.” said Obaida Fares, a Syrian new media activist.
When you give to WITNESS you enable activists all over the world, like Obaida, who want to use video to document the human rights violations happening around them.
As part of our 20th Anniversary kick-off, we are asking for your help. We need to raise $20,000 by June 20th. These funds will be spent addressing the needs of video activists around the world. We cannot do it without the support of individuals like you.
Will you join us with a donation today?
Thank you for your support,
Miyoko, Ashley, Yvette, Lizzie, Jenni and the whole WITNESS team
