WIRED features Videre’s work
Effective documentation and exposure are vital factors in the fight against human rights violations. Videre, an international charity founded in 2008, gives local activists the equipment, training and support needed to safely capture compelling video evidence of human rights violations. This captured footage is verified, analysed and then distributed to those who can create change.
Videre’s unique approach addresses the lack of reach, security, verification and impact that hampers civil society’s current efforts to expose human rights abuses. We reach out to those groups and individuals that traditional or new media cannot; ensure the security of activists who film violations; verify footage before use; and follow through to ensure effective distribution and measurable impact.
