WITNESS Media Archive Mission

The WITNESS Media Archive’s mission is to collect, document, preserve and provide access to audiovisual human rights media in the support of advocacy, prosecution of justice, truth telling, and the historical record.

We believe that archives serve a critical role in human rights advocacy, by protecting and preserving evidence, restoring memory, ensuring the endurance of under-represented voices, and as a bulwark against impunity and forgetting.
