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

PROOF is a New York City based non profit organization that envisions a world of upstanders who will take action in defense of others.

PROOF organizes and documents global and domestic social injustices to reveal the power of everyday upstanders. PROOF’s network of human rights activists facilitates the testimonies of those who take action against injustice. By engaging a network of photo journalists, activists, and scholars and through the ethical collection of testimonies, PROOF’s exhibitions and workshops encourage righteous action.  

PROOF was founded in 2006 with a vision to unite the skills and experiences of internationally renowned photojournalists for social justice advocacy and action. Our exhibits and workshops aim to engage the broader public in conversations about human rights, peace, and justice through moving first-hand testimonies and powerful photo narratives.
