Mission Statement

First and foremost, our mission is to aid organizations that serve the needs of women and women of color especially, through garnering support and informing a wider audience of the organizations’ goals. Additionally, we aim to showcase creative images that convey the annual theme, which always relates to empowerment and freedom. We hope that in unifying these efforts we can achieve the goals of the organizations we cherish and encourage the creation of art and photography that promote social awareness and healing.
