What makes this so appealing for me is it brings activism to you and when you’re done with the program, you can feel like you really made a difference.

Welcome to PROOF: Media for Social Justice

PROOF uses visual storytelling to highlight human rights and promote peacebuilding

Bringing together photographers, documentarians, academics, and activists, PROOF creates exhibitions, publications, and on-site activities in nations with some of the world’s most troubled histories. PROOF’s exhibitions tell untold stories of acts of moral courage and document injustice and human rights abuses.

By partnering with local organizations in post-conflict societies, PROOF creates visual documentary projects that become sustainable educational tools in regions riven by recent armed conflict and atrocities. PROOF’s mission is to contribute to research and scholarship, develop educational materials for local and international use, and encourage activism and empowerment to promote social change.
