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've put together a short video with different WITNESS staff talking about images that opened their eyes to human rights abuses around the world. Now we'd like to hear from you:
What image opened your eyes to human rights?
Join some of our friends and partners that have used video to create change by sharing what image had the greatest impression on you. 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?
