WITNESS  use video in human rights advocacy,

 WITNESS is an international human rights organization that provides training and support to local groups to use video in their human rights advocacy campaigns. Beyond providing video cameras and editing equipment, WITNESS is committed to facilitating exposure for our partners’ issues on a global scale. We help broker relationships with international media outlets, government officials, policymakers, activists, and the general public so that once a video is made, it can be used as a tool to advocate for change.

Since 1992 WITNESS has pioneered the use of video in human rights advocacy, partnering with organizations worldwide to produce over 40 compelling, issue-oriented documentaries about a wide range of human rights subjects. These documentaries have been screened at the United Nations and the U.S. Congress, broadcast on television and cable networks around the globe, screened at national and international film festivals, and used in human rights, international law, and other academic curricula worldwide.
