“[Voice of Witness] books are amazing . . . beautifully produced, with incredible editing and literary sensibility. Voice of Witness has done a better job than I’ve seen anybody do with having people tell their stories in a way that really engages you.”

“In a time when history is told in cheap television re-enactments, if at all, and personal tragedy is gobbled up in rapidly digestible magazine photos and reality shows, this project goes against the grain.”

The Guardian UK

“The Voice of Witness series is a megaphone for our country’s most marginalized voices.”

Van Jones, former special advisor to the Obama White House, author of Rebuilding the Dream and The Green Collar Economy
