WITNESS Gets Real at International Documentary Association Conference

This week, our U.S. Program Coordinator Palika Makam joined activists and journalists in Los Angeles at the International Documentary Association’s “Getting Real” conference.

Getting Real is a biennial conference on documentary media. The three-day conference attracts over 800 participants and is the only gathering of its kind in North America. Palika participated in a panel titled, Journalists Under Threat and spoke about best practices for being safe while reporting on critical human rights abuses.

Today, Palika will be moderating a panel titled, Duty of Care – Protecting Vulnerable Sources, which will focus on protecting sources who report on human rights abuses from the frontlines.
