Rightswire's mission is to empower human rights organizations and activists worldwide by providing them with the news and information they need to do their work efficiently.
Rightswire is an online initiative to provide the international human rights community with timely, relevant human rights-related news and information. Rightswire collects stories from hundreds of vetted information sources, including human rights organizations, news agencies, governments, and activists, and makes it available in a single location--the Rightswire website. Visitors to the website, including mobile users, are provided with the information they need to work efficiently and effectively in the human rights arena.
I've had the honor and privilege to perform some transcription work for Rightswire. The work has been inspiring as I'm able to use my computer skills to help bring interviews of remarkable human rights advocates to a wider audience. The best part of the process is actually listening to activists tell their story and hear their suggestions about how to get involved. Rightswire is an organization with a genuinely worthwhile mission; one that will help change our country for the better, faster.
