Project Witness VR Experience

What is Project Witness?

Project Witness is a partnership between the Campaign for the Fair Sentencing of Youth (CFSY), YouTube, and Google using immersive VR (virtual reality) and Google Lens technologies to build awareness of the conditions of childhood incarceration. Project Witness features the stories of six individuals who were incarcerated as children and depicts the extreme forms of punishment imposed on incarcerated children in the United States.

Through the VR film above, viewers can see the experience of prison through the eyes of a child, with narration from people who experienced childhood incarceration firsthand. You can learn more about Google Lens below. As you scroll down this page, you can read further about the lives of the people featured in this project and immerse yourself in their thoughts.
