Supporting Activists in the Middle East and North Africa

We’ve worked with activists across the region to develop and provide tools, tips and materials in Arabic aimed to support activists’ efforts to document and share evidence of human rights violations with the media, human rights organizations and judicial bodies. Last year we conducted 37 in-depth training sessions and over 200 online trainings. We also distributed upwards of 300 flash drives that include all of our training resources. This may sound like an out of date way to share information, but these portable drives serve activists who are offline and unable to travel freely. This content is then copied and shared among other activists on the ground, extending WITNESS’ reach.
