Visual Justice: Democratized Video as Evidence


How can video documentation of injustices, such as cell phone videos, be used as evidence in court and other forums for human rights advocacy? Learn from examples in Syria and other locations across the globe where video has been used to secure prosecutions of the guilty or exonerations of the innocent.
