How can video documentation of injustices, such as cell phone videos, be used as evidence in court and other forums for human rights advocacy? Learn from examples in Syria and other locations across the globe where video has been used to secure prosecutions of the guilty or exonerations of the innocent.

The event features University of Oregon School of Law alumna Kelly Matheson, who is senior attorney and program manager for WITNESS, an international human rights organization that specializes in using video to support change in human rights practice, policy and law. Matheson is an attorney, filmmaker and human rights activist.
