HAART Kenya is selected to screen: D.C. Web Festival
Apr 9, 2018
In April I attended the DC Web Fest, which highlights the best of the web, for the PWB TV web series screening of HAART Kenya.
PWB TV is a documentary series that takes the viewer on a journey with PWB photographers to see how everyday heroes around the world are making big differences in their communities. This season takes us to Kenya to look at human trafficking, to India to look at how women are affected by the caste system, to Bali to learn about sustainability and poverty reduction, and Bosnia and Herzegovina to learn more about how youth see the world post-conflict.
I am excited that HAART Kenya was chosen for the screening. HAART Kenya is an organization dedicated to ending modern slavery (human trafficking) against women and children in Kenya and East Africa.
Great interview with Megan Caulfield. It’s been quite remarkable in the reach that the Photographers Without BordersT V Web series has had. At PWB and HAART Kenya we believe art is an exceptional tool to create awareness about human trafficking that is why we have consistently tried to use film and photography to reach a wider audience.
Telling these types of stories is so important and when they resonate with larger audiences, it feels like we are making a huge difference. Human trafficking is the second largest illegal trade after drugs, having surpasses arms and weapons. It affects people, predominantly women and children, all over the world.
Had the opportunity to sit in on "SOCIAL JUSTICE AND THE CAMERA” PANEL DISCUSSION at the Newseum.

An exceptional morning meeting with Founder of ArtWorks for Freedom, Kay Chernush. It was a pleasure to spend time together and talk more about using the power of photography to continue the fight against trafficking.
