RALEIGH (September 22, 2021) — On Thursday, September 23 at 6 p.m., residents, elected officials, and the media are invited to view the Fayetteville Community Health Photography Exhibit organized by the North Carolina Justice Center in collaboration with community members.

The Fayetteville Community Health Photography Exhibit is the culmination of an eight-week-long Photovoice project in which community members share parts of their lives to raise awareness, advocate, tell a story, or educate others through authentic photography.

“The primary goal of the Photovoice project is to encourage community members to share their story on their own terms through their own frame of reference and lens,” said Rebecca Cerese, Health Engagement Coordinator of the NC Justice Center’s Health Advocacy Project.

“Through that storytelling process, community members ultimately come to realize the power and worth of their own stories and what they can do to influence change.”

Photos will explore themes of healthcare access, affordable medicine, food access, domestic violence, and housing instability.

WHAT: Fayetteville Community Health Photography Exhibit

WHEN: Thursday, September 23 at 6 p.m.
