Drugreporter Video Advocacy Network
The network is a group of video activists engaged in advocating for drug policy reform and harm reduction development all around the world. The network is coordinated by the Rights Reporter Foundation, with the aim of strengthening collaboration and sharing information and resources between members. 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:
