We’re incredibly honored to announce that The Human Rights Channel and WITNESS’ own YouTube channel have been named finalists in the 18th Annual Webby Awards category Online Film & Video: Public Service & Activism (Channel).
These Are Your Human Rights Channels
This is as much an honor for you as it is for us. For all the activists, the citizen journalists, the witnesses who are filming and sharing footage of human rights issues from your communities with the rest of the world and calling for accountability, justice, change, your work is not going unnoticed.
Please celebrate these nominations with us by voting for The Human Rights Channel and WITNESS in the Webby’s People’s Voice Awards. You can do that by visiting the Webby’s website which will prompt you to 1) sign up to vote with either a Facebook, Google or Twitter account, 2) visit this page and 3) choose either The Human Rights Channel or WITNESS. (You can vote only once per category.)
We’d also appreciate you sharing this good news with your networks and asking them to vote for us too. If you share the news on Twitter, let us know by tweeting us @ythumanrights + @witnessorg.
