Some of the network members are people who have been given training in video advocacy by members of the Foundation; others joined the group based on their similar interests and goals. We produce movies together by sharing information and footage. The Rights Reporter Foundation supports its members with funding to produce videos. Currently there are 30 members of the network from 18 countries. Movies produced by the network members either by our support or in cooperation, can be watched below:
