Topics Spotlight
I am a co-founder and creative director of We, Women, the largest social impact photography project by womxn in the United States. We, Women’s grants, mentorship, national public art exhibition, and educational curriculum enabled artists to tackle critical social issues. Grantees created images collaboratively, visualized underrepresented experiences, and amplified existing grassroots organizing. Born out of frustration over the country’s deep inequities, We, Women was designed to foster action and dialog. I am proud of our founding team’s determination. Despite funder rejections, logistical obstacles, and a pandemic, we refused to banish We, Women to “a great idea.”
