Lena Arkawi

Lena Arkawi is a Syrian American activist and public relations expert in New York. For over a decade, Lena worked with media, human rights experts, and Syrian citizen journalists on the Syrian conflict. Lena noticed the gaps of trust between the groups and the need to verify and archive data. In 2021, Lena founded Sourceable, an online platform and mobile application empowering citizen journalists to document, verify, archive, and share critical news with media, human rights groups, and NGOs in real-time. Today, Lena is focused on growing Sourceable globally, particularly in areas of conflict and crisis to help shed light on human rights abuses, humanitarian crises, and human-interest stories. Through Sourceable, Lena aims to help the media, journalism, and truth-telling industries with verifiable news in real-time.
