ACLU Police Brutality Video Showcased By Witness.org

By Molly Kaplan, ACLU at 1:52pm

Today, Peter Garbriel’s video advocacy non-profit Witness.org used the ACLU’s montage of protest footage from Puerto Rico as an example of effective video advocacy on its blog. The post dissects how the video contributed to the ACLU’s larger effort to bring awareness to police brutality and other civil rights abuses in Puerto Rico, an effort that scored a major win with the recent release of a scathing Justice Department report on the abuses of the Puerto Rico police department.

The video featured by Witness.org was originally used as visual testament to the abuse we were investigating during our May fact-finding mission and later posted as part of our larger advocacy work. We'll release a report of our findings later this year, but in the meantime, check out the video and learn more about the campaign here.
