VIDEO FOR CHANGE

WITNESS (www.witness.org) uses the power of video to open the eyes of the world to
human rights abuses. By partnering with local organizations around the globe, WITNESS
empowers human rights defenders to use video as a tool to shine a light on those most
affected by human rights violations, and to transform personal stories of abuse into
powerful tools of justice. Since its founding in 1992, WITNESS has partnered with groups
in more than 60 countries, bringing often unseen images, untold stories and seldom heard
voices to the attention of key decision makers, the media, and the general public --
prompting grassroots activism, political engagement, and lasting change.
