Known for his amazing comedic skills, Robin Williams was also a longtime charity supporter for causes ranging from eradicating homelessness to research of children’s cancers and spinal cord injuries, and more. In 1996, Mr. Williams recorded this brilliant PSA when WITNESS was featured in the “VH-1 Honors” program. We were deeply saddened to hear of his death yesterday and extend our condolences to his family and friends.

Nearly 20 years later, his kinetic call to action is still a powerful inspiration for our mission: supporting the millions of people who use video to document human rights abuses in order to create change.
