IWitness ~ Student Leaders


The resources in this toolkit are designed by the USC Shoah Foundation to support your efforts in building an inclusive and connected campus community. At the heart of this toolkit are the testimonies of witnesses of genocide and crimes against humanity and newly recorded interviews with witnesses of contemporary violence from our Countering Antisemitism Through Testimony initiative. These stories provide unique perspective on antisemitism, racism and sexual violence, and other hate-based attitudes and behaviors that continue to affect campuses today.

The many voices we have here serve to remind us of the responsibility and capacity we all have to effect positive social change. We encourage you to explore how testimony can be used in your work.
