[voice of witness]
"Voice of Witness (VOW) is a non-profit dedicated to fostering a more nuanced, empathy-based understanding of contemporary human rights crises. We do this by amplifying the voices of individuals most closely affected by injustice, and by providing curricular and training support to educators and invested communities."
To date, they have published thirteen books of oral histories, with stories from Palestine, Chicago Public Housing, Columbia, and more.
