Human Rights & International Justice
BROOKLYN, NEW YORK — WITNESS partners with human rights advocates around the globe to use the power of video and storytelling in order to expose human rights abuses and advance justice for crimes that are committed. The grant supports the organization's Camera's Everywhere program that is creating new tools that aid in documenting and preserving video evidence of human rights abuses, and advocating for leading technology companies to implement policies and practices that create a more enabling environment for human rights work in the digital world, particularly as it relates to gathering and documenting video evidence.
The MacArthur Foundation awarded WITNESS $300,000 between 2002 and 2014.
