Program Manager for the Americas, WITNESS - USA

Kelly Matheson is an attorney, filmmaker and human rights advocate who previously worked with WITNESS to launch the first Video Advocacy Institute. As an attorney, she worked as a Law Fellow in Tanzania researching citizens’ rights to bring suit against their governments when governments broke their own laws. She also practiced throughout the western United States working on issues where environmental and human rights converge. She began creating films in 2003 as part of Montana State University’s MFA Documentary Filmmaking program. Her film projects focus on indigenous and environmental rights in Central America, the United States and the Congo Basin. Kelly returns to WITNESS after working as a Fulbright researcher in Congo-Brazzaville where she collaborated with a video-centered outreach project to determine the effectiveness of video to change health and conservation practices.
