WITNESS is a brand based in New York that strives to empower individuals to protect and defend human rights through the use of video and technology. With the widespread availability of cameras, people are turning to video as a means to document and share stories of abuse. However, many lack the knowledge and skills to film safely and effectively, resulting in videos that don't make a difference.
That's where WITNESS comes in. Through their innovative approach, WITNESS identifies critical situations and provides training on video production, safe and ethical filming techniques, and advocacy strategies to those affected by them. They also develop tools and apps to enhance safety and advocate to technology companies for systemic change.
Furthermore, WITNESS curates and draws attention to citizen footage of under-reported stories. Their impactful work has resulted in partnerships with over 570 organizations, training for 11,350 individuals, representation from 135 countries, and access to their resources by 1 million people in the last year alone. WITNESS also celebrates numerous success stories, such as video evidence leading to justice in the Democratic Republic of Congo and combating police violence in Brazil.
