Seeing for Ourselves equips and trains marginalized individuals to take control of their own public narrative by documenting their lives photographically.


The practice is known as "participatory photography."

The views of today's teens have not been taken nearly as seriously as those of their elders in the national conversation around climate change—yet they have
