Emily Myers, External Relations Associate

As WITNESS’ External Relations Associate Emily focuses on driving engagement and raising resources to expand the organization’s network of funders and advocates. It is her dream to be working at WITNESS  and to make more people aware of the important work happening at the intersection of video, technology, and human rights around the world.

Prior to WITNESS, Emily headed up the Donor Support team at Bright Funds, a San Francisco-based philanthropy start-up.

She holds a Master’s in International Studies. Her thesis research centered on networks of indigenous-produced and open source community media in Oaxaca, Mexico. She hails from New Hampshire (LFOD) and speaks English and Spanish. You can usually catch her in the local public library, or trying to convince someone to watch a scary movie with her.
