Review for Critical Exposure Inc, Washington, DC, USA
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.
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.
