WITNESS makes it possible for anyone, anywhere to use video and technology to protect and defend human rights.
WITNESS trains and supports activists and citizens around the world to use video safely, ethically, and effectively to expose human rights abuse and 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 and tell stories of abuse. But all too often, they are not filming safely or effectively, and their videos don’t make a difference.
We identify critical situations and teach those affected by them the basics of video production, safe and ethical filming techniques, and advocacy strategies.
