Event Details: Critical Exposure would like to invite you to attend our 5th annual photography auction, Picture Equality: An Evening of Empowerment through Photography. Critical Exposure provides low-income students with the opportunity to tell their stories through photography. But we don’t stop there. We then teach the students how to use the power of their images and voices to change policies that directly affect their lives. Since our founding in 2004, Critical Exposure has worked with 1,200 students in D.C. and across the country. These students helped to secure more than $500 million to improve public schools, supported campaigns to address youth homelessness and teen pregnancy, and are now working to fix D.C.’s dropout crisis. Our students were even featured on Oprah and CNN. Critical Exposure is hosting our annual reception and silent auction, Picture Equality, on Thursday, October 18, 2012 in the DLA Piper Building atrium. The auction will feature images donated by world-class, professional photographers, including Pulitzer Prize winners and contributors to National Geographic and the New York Times. A selection of student photos will also be auctioned. The auction reception will feature heavy hors d'oeuvres and refreshments.
