Picture Justice is an education program that was created in 2014 by the New York-based non-profit organisation, PROOF: Media for Social Justice. Over the last 5 years, Picture Justice has been run in a range of schools in Manhattan and Brooklyn, including the United Nations International School, Avenues the World School, Lyons and several public schools.
In the United States, Picture Justice equips participants with the skills to address social injustices in their own communities through a combination of photography, storytelling, and human rights education.
The program fosters critical thinking and active citizenship, promotes compassion and empathy, and equips participants with the skills needed to be social justice advocates.
The US-based program has seen a wealth of creative material created by the participants, including full scale exhibitions, newspaper-style publications and digital publications.
