Gillian Caldwell of WITNESS, 2003 Laureate in the Equality award
category and cash prize recipient, called The Tech Museum Awards "...a
truly remarkable program that has given WITNESS acclaim for using
technology to document human rights abuses. I was deeply honored
to be recognized, along with 24 other innovators from around the
world who are working to improve human life through technology.
The exposure generated from receiving this award and the $50,000
