About Us

Voice of Witness (VOW) is an award-winning, San Francisco-based nonprofit that advances human rights and dignity. We believe empathy inspires critical inquiry, leading to meaningful action. Through our oral history book series and education program, we amplify the voices of people impacted by injustice, teach our ethics-driven oral history methodology, and partner with human rights advocates to:

·      build agency within marginalized communities,

·      foster thoughtful, empathy-based critical inquiry and understanding of the crises they face, and

·      inform efforts to protect and advance human rights.


For over ten years, VOW has illuminated human rights issues in the U.S. and globally. Our acclaimed oral history book series has amplified hundreds of seldom-heard voices, including those of wrongfully convicted Americans, undocumented immigrants, and people in Burma, Zimbabwe, and Colombia. Our education program serves over 20,000 people annually, and our oral history pedagogy has been used to train educators, advocates, writers, journalists, attorneys, and medical doctors.

 

Voice of Witness was cofounded by author Dave Eggers, writer & educator Mimi Lok, and physician Lola Vollen. For more information, visit www.voiceofwitness.org
