Impact videos are inspirational stories of bottom-up change that document how community media has led to concrete change. VV teaches Correspondents not just to report, but also to initiate local campaigns, and approximately 1 in 5 videos manages to solve the underlying issue. How?

When necessary, Video Volunteers will start petitions, lobby the state or national administration, or engage the media in order to bring about the change.
