CANCELED: Android users, help us test out a new app!
Update: This event is canceled, but we will keep you posted on future opportunities to extend your solidarity through Mobil-Eyes-Us.
Android users, help us test our Mobil-Eyes Us app on June 6 at 8 p.m. ET. Mobil-Eyes Us is a WITNESS’ initiative that connects frontline human rights defenders with distant supporters in real time.
On June 6, join us for a debate on state violence in Brazil centered around the “Auto de Resistência,” a documentary on homicides committed by Rio de Janeiro’s military police. The debate will be livestreamed from Brazil via the app with community leaders and victims of police violence joining in and sharing their experiences. The debate will be in Portuguese and translated into English by volunteers via the app.
Here’s how you can get involved:
- If you’re an Android user, download the app here;
- Share the event details with partners, friends, and activists who you think may be interested in the Brazilian context of police abuse, and those thinking of ways to better document those abuses;
- Tune-in June 6 at 8 p.m. ET to watch the debate and share your support;
- Help us improve the app by noticing any glitches or if you have suggestions, you can post your comments in real time via the app.
