About Witness Change
1392 McLendon Avenue NE #22, Atlanta, GA 30307, US
Witness Change is a not for profit organization dedicated to improving the lives of excluded people by amplifying their stories. Stigmatized people are often excluded from their own stories. We use visual storytelling to support these people as they reclaim the narratives of their lives to achieve necessary change such as influencing policies, attitudes and behaviors that affect them.
Witness Change started in 2015 and was entirely a volunteer run organisation until recently. Without the passionate, dedicated volunteers who bring their skills and enthusiasm to the organization, we could not deliver the campaigns that make a difference in the lives of those whose stories we tell.
As we grow, we will take on more stories to help other excluded groups but our most recent projects have focused on the following:
We are campaigning for an end to discrimination and persecution based on sexuality or gender identity. Where Love Is Illegal uses storytelling as a key advocacy tool to change the narrative on LGBTIQ+ people in countries where their voices are silenced because LGBTIQ+ people are, in some regions, increasingly subject to rampant discrimination, criminalization, and even death.

Our goal is to create a world where mental health is recognized as a global health priority and a society where people living with mental health issues are seen, heard and valued. In My World uses storytelling’s powerful potential to amplify the voices of those living with mental health issues to break down barriers that divide us, and prompt action.
1000dreamsproject.com changes the prevailing refugee narratives through a storytelling project that tells the stories of 1000 refugees of diverse experience.
