GPS bracelet uses social media to protect Civil Rights Activists The Civil Rights Defenders have issued their first batch of GPS bracelets that will alert the CRDs' headquarters, other nearby activists, and the entirety of the CRDs' social media following if the bracelet's owner is ever kidnapped. The first 5 bracelets were issued from April 2nd through April 5th during the Civil Rights Defenders' conference, Defenders' Days. The CRD plans on issuing 55 of these bracelets over the next year and a half. The bracelets are described as a personal alarm, and the product is called the "Natalia Project". It was named after Natalia Estemirova, a human rights defender who, in 2009, was murdered within 24 hours of being kidnapped. The CRD believed that if the authorities were alerted sooner of Natalia's kidnapping, the tragedy could have been prevented.

L’association souffre d’un déficit de notoriété grand public et d’implication à la cause défendue. En effet, le grand public (voyant) n’a pas forcément conscience des difficultés rencontrées par les aveugles et malvoyants, et surtout des solutions que peut apporter une structure comme l’Association Valentin Haüy. A travers le film « Les Victoires », l’Association Valentin Haüy et Optimus évoquent avec simplicité des gestes banals, ordinaires pour des voyants, qui représentent de véritables victoires pour les aveugles et les malvoyants. Réalisé à partir d’un casting de volontaires, le film met en scène des femmes et des hommes réellement aveugles ou très malvoyants sous forme de témoignages des gestes du quotidien.
