Review for Critical Exposure Inc, Washington, DC, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have known Adam for several years and have attended 4 or 5 critical exposure (CE) gallery/auction type events hosted by CE. The organizations work is certainly a worthy cause - helping to educate the public about the conditions of our school system and trying to secure add'l money to improve our school system. How they accomplish this one of the remarkable aspects of the organization. They recruit students and teach them how to use photography to capture school condition and use this to seek improvement - either through public awareness, increased funding, better safety, etc. If you're fortunate to attend one of the Galleries hosted by CE, I'm sure you will be shocked by the conditions that are shown by these school photographers, but also impressed by the professionalism and passion that is shared by the staff as well as the student photographers. I've also been able to spend some time speaking with a few of the students at these events and it is great to see what some students are trying to do to make a difference. I'm happy to continue to support critical exposure and wish them well.

I am very pleased with the work of this organization. Like most non profits, I only wish they were abel to secure more funding which would enable them to expand their work.

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

Seeing the passion of the staff up close - it is easy to support an organization that truely believes in their cause and is doing great work.

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

All very professional and energetic.

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

Educate a lot more of the public about the state of our eduction system and hlep to improve the condition of our schools.

Ways to make it better...

I wish that I had some constructive feedback to offer the organization, but given their size I think they do a great job with their message.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

Like most non-profits funding is critical - it costs them money to get equipment, host galleries, develop pictures, etc.

One thing I'd also say is that...

I would encourage anyone to follow CE and attend one of their galleries. I'm sure you will be just as impressed as I am.

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?
