For 16 years, WITNESS has harnessed the power of video to advance human rights. In honor of the 60th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights on December 10th, we're asking our friends and partners to answer the following question:
What image opened your eyes to human rights?
Was it an image or video that gave you hope, or did it show you how much further we needed to go and inspire you to take action?
In this video, WITNESS' Sara Federlein, Development Manager/Institutional Relations, answers the question and talks about images of mine workers taken by photographer Sebastião Salgado that made a lasting impression on her.
