Year after year I continue to be impressed with the top talent and the commitment the CE team has toward the mission. With little resources, CE is able to make a significant impact on the lives of students as well as help bring about change in the schools--truly making a positive difference.

I have recently joined the family of Critical Exposure and given the size of the staff and members the organization does a great job in bring awareness to the inequities of the public school system. I think with more funding and resources the organization will continue to grow and make impacts on young children as they continue to express themselves through photography and their own voices.

I have personally witness the organizations five year event which brought artist and children together for a common cause and that was to bring awareness to the public schools systems and its challenges through photography.

I am fortunate to know well the work that Critical Exposure does with the youth in the communities it serves. CE takes the energy of a small group of passionate individuals to create big change in classrooms, communities, and cities. Teens have documented the high school drop-out crisis in DC Public Schools, they've taken school systems to task to change the conditions of school buildings in districts across the country, and they've helped tell the story youth homelessness. I've seen the effect the young people's photographs have on viewers, when their work is exhibited. The images force people to stop. They shake their heads in disbelief. They look around for other people in the room to share their thoughts with... It is truly remarkable. And that's to say nothing of the impact the photographs and advocacy work have made on legislation and budgets of big cities and school districts.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

seeing young people become excited about organizing to help solve the DC high school drop out crisis, and hearing students speak as proud, self-proclaimed leaders in advocating for change about things that impact them personally.

To engage with Critical Exposure is to be struck by three things: 1) that it teaches a skill - photography - that gives children an empowering voice and a potential avocation later; 2) the maturity of its staff and programs despite its size; and 3) the way it just executes on all cylinders. Attend one of their functions and you cannot help but see the power of their mission at work, on the walls in the form of the photographs underprivileged children take to document the deplorable conditions of their schools and living circumstances.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

the faces and voices of the children who show up to show off their work proudly and tell the story behind their visions; the volume of volunteers who freely give their time to make the events happen; and in the way the staff interact with the Board.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

the way you can hear in the children's voices the empowerment they feel from what they have created and learned in Critical Exposure's classes.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Phenomenally dedicated!! They truly make all the events occur without a hitch at interesting venues around the city to spread the good word to the viewing public.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

reach more children nationally, while becoming more self-sustaining (to live through inevitable funding difficulties).

Critical Exposure is supporting students around the country in learning new skills AND telling their personal stories to the general public. Through this process, students support important policies changes that will improve their lives directly and gain confidence as they learn the fundamental of photography and the power of personal expression. It is vital the the people actually affected by issues -- and in this case young people themselves -- are actively engaged in discussions about solutions. Critical Exposure is extremely effective in this process.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

seeing the students' photographs and reading their personal stories through exhibits, and then talking directly with them as they present their work to elected officials, policy makers and the general public.

Critical Exposure taught my middle school students how to document what worked and what didn't work in our school, write about these photographs, and create a petition for change. Students felt empowered and engaged through this work, and they learned skills that they will carry with them -- photography, advocacy, and writing.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Our students, our schools, and our DC -- through their photo exhibits and through the work they have done with my students
