Lwamwe Muzima, ’14 blogs for International Day
Lwamwe Muzima, ’14 PSJ major, wrote this blog entry for International Day in Support of Victims of Torture. Muzima is an intern for WITNESS, an international nonprofit organization that has been using the power of video and storytelling for 20 years to open the eyes of the world to human rights abuses. WITNESS empowers human rights defenders to use video to fight injustice, and to transform personal stories of abuse into powerful tools that can pressure those in power or with power to act. By bringing often unseen images and seldom heard stories to the attention of key decision makers, the media, and the public–WITNESS catalyzes grassroots activism, political engagement, and lasting change.
