During our End of Year fundraising campaign, D.C. Witness is asking for your help to continue to provide transparency of the local criminal justice system that has become broken due to outdated infrastructure and technology. D.C. Witness is a unique 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization designed to harness information to address homicide, domestic violence and sexual assault cases. Please help D.C. Witness reach our year-end fundraising goal. We are hoping to raise $10,000 by Dec. 31. The tax-deductible donations will be matched dollar-for-dollar. Please consider helping support our work to bring transparency to our city's criminal justice system.
