Harness the power of video
in-it is an issue-based video crowdsourcing platform that empowers people to organize by sharing short videos of their stories and experiences in a secure way. With in-it people can create a collective voice that is easy to find/share and impossible to ignore.
Create a collective voice
From affordable housing to global warming to free school lunch, there are a lot of issues out there that demand attention. Yet, on social media stories are scattered across individual users and competing platforms, making it hard for people to create a collective voice.
With in-it people can collectively, create a narrative around a topic that is powerful, inclusive and impactful.
Anonymity when you need it
When it comes to sensitive or controversial issues, most of us are silent on social media out of fear, shame, conformity or disappointment.
We believe every story matters. That’s why we empower people to have the option to upload their videos to missions that allow anonymous content without disclosing their identity (pixelate videos and hidden name).
Your influence can spark real change
If you have a strong base of followers, you are in a great position to change the world for the better. So, what if under the umbrella of your influence, you could bring attention to stories of people who would go unheard otherwise?
Whether you are a celebrity, a politician, a journalist, an activist, a researcher or anyone else whose work becomes more powerful with people's collective stories and voices, we are here for you.

How to launch a mission?
A mission give you the opportunity to create a video campaign within seconds. Then spread the word about it and even embed the mission on your own website.
1. Plan your mission
Pick your mission’s topic about something that deserves more attention. It can be for an issue in your community, city, country or the world- it’s the impact that you want to make that matters.
2. Customize it
Now, all you have to do is to communicate what videos you need and set a deadline. Then you can give your mission a goal (to let other users know how many videos you need), list any supporters you have and give users the option to contribute anonymously (for more sensitive topics).
3. Share your own video
Help people understand and spread the word about your mission by being the first to share your video to it. Make sure to clearly explain your message, goal and what you need in your video.
4. Put your influence to work
Share the mission page with your followers and fans to share videos of their stories. Also, invite individuals and organizations that can join forces to support your mission.
5. Make some noise
Your mission doesn’t end here. Use it to shape an honest and unbiased narrative, create a strong community, and push for lasting change
6. Expand your network and knowledge
When your mission ends, we offer your participants’ email list, as well as insights and information about your mission.
Success Story: #StopTheBan
We did our pilot Mission (video campaign) for the Travel Ban and our collected stories were featured on CNN, used as a resource to support the No Ban Act in US congress, and got the attention of various documentary makers and members of congress.
Before that, most affected people felt uncomfortable sharing their stories on social media, and those who did couldn’t bring much attention to them. Once they were all in the same place in a unified format, they became extremely valuable for activists and journalists, and hard to ignore by policymakers and the media. More importantly, the audience could find a source to understand the story from those who are in it.
