Welcome to PROOF: Media for Social Justice

PROOF uses visual storytelling and Education to inspire action on human rights.

PROOF: Media for Social Justice is a non-profit organization based in New York City that uses visual storytelling and education to inspire action on human rights and create attitude and policy change. PROOF was founded in 2006 with a vision to unite the skills and experiences of internationally renowned photojournalists for social justice advocacy and action.

PROOF brings together photographers, documentarians, journalists, academics, students, and activists to create photo exhibitions, publications, and educational workshops that document global and domestic social injustices and empower people to act. Our exhibits and workshops aim to engage the broader public in conversations about human rights, peace, and justice through moving firsthand testimonies and powerful photo narratives.
