Here in the US and across the globe, there are thousands of people who are forgotten or marginalized –by design or by circumstance. Whether they are victims of domestic violence, refugees caught in the crossfire of a civil war, or workers in sweatshops who brave life-threatening conditions for less than $5 a day – their stories need to be documented and shared as the first step in moving people to take action.
The Alexia Foundation promotes the power of photojournalism to give voice to social injustice, to respect history lest we forget it and to understand cultural difference as our strength – not our weakness.
Through grants, scholarships and special projects, The Alexia Foundation supports photographers as agents for change.
Since its inception in 1991, The Alexia Foundation has awarded over $1,000,000 to 129 photography students and 25 professional photojournalists producing 154 funded projects.
Location: Headquartered in NJ, projects take place around the world.
