Leaving WITNESS – Hoping to Collaborate Soon – Be in Touch

Posted in Uncategorized by chrismichael on November 7, 2013

Hello there,

I’m writing to share some news and connect you with some of my colleagues.

After nearly seven phenomenal years with my WITNESS family, I am leaving to start my own consultancy – Collaborations for Change.

I’m grateful to you, my colleagues and allies whom I’ve had the pleasure and privilege to work with while at WITNESS. Collaborating and learning with you while working to protect and promote human rights has yielded a series of professional and personal highlights.

Thank you.

As I make this transition, I will still be leading tailored video for change trainings and designing and facilitating participatory events with human rights advocates, groups and changemakers – please read more of what I am up to here.

Moving forward here at WITNESS, there are three primary colleagues with whom you may want to be in touch with in light of my transition:

Sarah Kerr – sarah – Program Associate and can swiftly coordinate all general Program-related inquiries.

Jackie Zammuto – jackie – Digital Engagement Coordinator who maintains and enhances all of our fantastic how-to guides, tip sheets and curricula.

Priscila Neri – priscila – Senior Program Manager who oversees our work in the Americas, as well as our forced evictions work. Priscila will be heading up WITNESS’ Video for Change Network collaborations.

Additionally, WITNESS has some great job openings for committed folks who want to join a dynamic team of passionate, smart advocates!

As for me, I would love to keep in touch and hear the latest from you!

Mustaches for Kids! Support our Kiddos and Overworked, Under-Resourced Teachers!

Posted in 1 by chrismichael on November 11, 2009


it’s the annual shave and grow for the kiddos!

for the four weeks i’ll be growing my mustache strong, i’ll be inviting you to support schools and teachers in need at home here in Brooklyn and back in my homeland of Kansas (projects at my high school and Davis’ mom’s school!).

The needs range from calculators and math books to African drums and materials for costume and puppet creation. Please donate what you can to help these kids and our overworked teachers – every $ goes a long way!

Do it for the kiddos! Go on, get to it and make a difference->

xo, chris

nb: last year we raised $1,742 – help us get to $2,009!!!

Please forward and share on facebook and all that good stuff!

love this subway advert. the double and triple-takes folks would have were priceless – especially if they had coke in their hand.

days like this help me remember to live amongst the four seasons.

niki’s halloween costume = *amazing*

Posted in 1 by chrismichael on November 11, 2009

niki was clocky from pee wee's playhouse. all those that know the show and character freaked-out when they saw her. so fantastic. watch some pee wee to reconnect to the greatness – and samuel l jackson + jimmy smits were on it (nice factoid for you).

DC for Pledge2Protect

Posted in 1 by chrismichael on November 11, 2009

went down to dc for the latest campaign i’ve been working on (read my post on how amazing youth have ushered-in a new era of video advocacy and are pressuring congress to create comprehensive legislation to prevent genocide and mass atrocities).

dc is pretty.
