In May, board member Mike Volpi and his wife Toni Cupal hosted an event for WITNESS allies, supporters and friends at their home. We enjoyed many inspiring moments with new faces and connections, and were particularly moved by the stories and conversations.

Mike, Middle East Program Coordinator Raja Althaibani, Executive Director Yvette Alberdingk Thijm and Advisory Committee member Esra’a Al Shafei all spoke about their experiences with WITNESS and what drives them to promote video for change. Radiation City also performed live in front of a very enthusiastic audience.

Events like this help to inspire community and generate important support for victims of human rights abuses.
