IT MATTERS TO ME PROJECT™
The It Matters To Me Project is a photojournalistic initiative that seeks to inspire in all people a sense of oneness and hope through personal stories that articulate a shared commitment to justice on matters of civil rights and human rights. We believe in the power to transform silence into collective action by identifying points of departure that begin with it matters to me. The Project has as its focus the building of a global storytelling community that 'speaks up' through a powerful yet arrestingly simple method of self-portraiture that breaks through to a deeper and more compassionate human existence. We act on the conviction that our common humanity requires us to acknowledge and respond to injustice, and to tell our stories about why it matters to me.
