Through our Eyes on ICE Project, the WITNESS U.S. team has focused on supporting directly impacted immigrant communities to use video to expose abuses by immigration enforcement and advocate for their rights through in-person trainings, resources, case studies, videos and more. We’re now looking for a legal fellow to help adapt portions of our landmark Video as Evidence Guide to a U.S. immigration specific context and to help engage with legal networks to ensure these valuable resources are reaching the right places.
WITNESS is pleased to announce lawyer Tara Vassefi as a Video as Evidence Legal Fellow. Tara will be examining various jurisdictions in the Middle East and North Africa for how they consider video as evidence.
