You and millions of people have video-enabled cameras in their pockets. Ordinary citizens, from Staten Island to Aleppo to Rio, are documenting the wrongs in their communities and exposing the truth - in the hope that change and justice will happen.
WITNESS helps ensure that all your efforts and those of so many brave people who capture and share abuses, are not in vain and that your videos turn into rights.
WITNESS is an international nonprofit that trains and supports people using video to fight for human rights. The organization was co-founded by musician and human rights advocate Peter Gabriel. For almost 25 years, we've empowered people to use video to fight injustice, and to transform personal stories of abuse into powerful tools that can pressure those in power to act.
On May 3rd, the WITNESS riders will stand up for all of our rights by completing the Five Borough Bike tour. As a Brooklyn-based non-profit, we are proud to participate in this inspiring event. And you inspire us!
