A Zimbabwean activist uses video to document gender-based violence and effect change.
WITNESS trains and equips activists and citizens all over the world to expose human rights abuse and to use video safely and effectively in the fight for human rights change.
The majority of the world’s population now has a camera in their pocket. People everywhere are turning to video to document abuse. But all too often, they are not filming safely and their videos don’t make a difference.
In critical situations, we teach video basics, safe filming techniques, and advocacy strategies online and in-person.
We develop award-winning tools and apps to keep people safer.
We advocate to technology companies to create change at the systems level.
We curate and help draw attention to citizen footage of under-reported stories.
