Leading US diversity speaker Darnell Moore hosts web series “The Movement” for Mic.com

Darnell Moore SpeakerLeading diversity speaker Darnell Moore hosts a brand new original series “The Movement” for Mic.com. The series aims to highlight regular people working on remarkable solutions to America’s social ills – from gun violence, racial antagonism, political infighting, police misconduct, widespread criminalization, sexual assault and much else.

Darnell explains, “There are the stories we choose to tell in media and those we ignore. It’s easy to locate media accounts highlighting social ills, but less available are narratives of progress and transformation. Mic’s newest original series, The Movement, is an attempt to fill in the gap.”

The series began on May 4th and is available to watch now globally via Mic.com and Youtube.

“To see is to believe”: Oren Yakobovich demonstrates the power of hidden cameras at TED Global 2014

Oren Yakobovich speaker - Photo by James Duncan Davidson - TEDOren Yakobovich is an Israeli social entrepreneur who has been working at the intersection of human rights and film-making for 20 years. He is a leading voice on how to use visual information to create sustainable lasting positive change in areas of conflict.

He co-founded Videre in 2008, an NGO with ground breaking methodology and hidden cameras to uncover, verify and publicise human-rights abuses that the world needs to witness. Videre’s name comes from the Latin expression “videre est credere” — to see is to believe.

Oren is sought-after expert on using technology to expose human rights violations, and is frequently called upon to brief civil society, government, international organisation and media decision-makers. He contends that only action by the oppressed communities themselves will temper the worst excesses of their authoritarian governments.

A deeply inspirational speaker and an outstanding storyteller, he believes that by putting the right images in the right hands at the right time, we can truly create a lasting impact. His TED Global 2014 talk, presented in Rio de Janeiro, received a standing ovation; watch Oren tell his story to discover why.
