The NonviolenceNY Network's YouTube Channel has 3 different types of videos, interview videos, explainer videos, and event videos!
Topics, causes, and concepts are very important to discuss, but hearing from people who have studied or experienced the effects of the topics can create a deeper understanding. We believe that an important part of learning about a topic is through listening to someone tell their story. Below we have examples of the different types of interviews we provide on our channel.
Interviews on Personal Experiences
This is an anonymous interview of a young Russian woman. She talks about her experience of watching the police brutality in protests in Russia.
This video is apart of a series we did with members of our international community. In this interview Derek reminisces about a time when he discussed black history with his very young daughter.
Here is an example of a video from our Intern Testimonial Series. Here we interview our interns and volunteers about their experience participating in our program.
Interviews on Topics with Experts
This was part of an intern lead interview series that discussed topics on disarmament with experts in the field.
During CSW, some of our interns were able to secure interviews with experts at the United Nations.
There are so many important causes and topics that are being discussed at the United Nations and in politics. There are many actions that are being taken as well. We believe that everyone deserves a seat at the table, so we have created explainer videos.
Explainer Videos focus on breaking down a specific part of a topic that may be confusing or needs further explanation. These videos are for those people that maybe new to the topic or a recourse for experts that what to better explain topic.
We hope that anyone from a 15 year old's impassioned binge, college student writing their thesis, or an expert teaching a class, can use these video to be able to understand and spread awareness about these important topics. We work hard to break down and explain topics so that everyone feels prepared and excited about participating in the conversations that are changing our world. Below are some examples of the different types of explainer videos that we have on our channel.

Live Stream: Our interns have the opportunity to attend events run by civil society, over Zoom, at the United Nations, or create their own events. We record the event so that everyone has the opportunity to learn and experience events at a later time. Below there are some examples of the events that we have on our YouTube channel.
