We are so excited to announce that Voice of Witness just received the Smithsonian American Ingenuity Award for Social Progress last night in DC!
Smithsonian magazine editor-in-chief Michael Caruso wrote in the official announcement: “We’ve polled the directors, curators and staffers at the Smithsonian Institution to find those innovators who are revolutionizing their fields with recent, high-impact achievements. While their work is different in objective, each winner is embracing the Smithsonian’s mission to increase knowledge and shape the world of tomorrow. We are delighted to showcase their work across all platforms.” Read the full feature here.
Thank you Smithsonian and all our supporters!
