As a legislator from Baltimore City, I believe that the compelling photographs and testimony from students working with Critical Exposure were an important factor in convincing my colleagues to support increased funding for public schools. In fact we were able to triple the amount of money we received this year in Annapolis thanks in great part to their efforts. - Maryland State Senator Nathaniel McFadden
Editor's note: Photographs taken by Critical Exposure Fellowship students were displayed in front of more than 2,000 people, including five members of the D.C. Council. Their photos attested to the disparities that persist in D.C.: while corporations receive massive public subsidies, many go homeless and hungry every night.
Editor's Note: Luis (17 years old, Washington, D.C.) writes a caption for his photo: CONSTRUCTION SITE
The area I once knew is no more. A new building here, another over there. But who’s going to live in these nice, expensive condos? If we lack opportunities, we lack money, and if we don’t have money then we will have to move.
