About us

Voice of Witness is a non-profit organization that uses oral history to illuminate contemporary human rights crises through an acclaimed oral history book series (published by McSweeney's) and an education program.

Voice of Witness has published books that present narratives from survivors of human rights crises including: exonerated men and women; residents of New Orleans before, during, and after Hurricane Katrina; undocumented workers in the United States; and persons abducted and displaced as a result of the civil war in southern Sudan.The Voice of Witness Education Program brings these stories, and the issues they reflect, into high schools and impacted communities through oral history-based curricula and holistic educator support.

The Voice of Witness book series was founded in 2004 by author Dave Eggers and physician Lola Vollen, M.D. In 2008, Mimi Lok joined Voice of Witness as its founding Executive Director & Executive Editor, and transitioned the book series into a successful 501c3 nonprofit.
