Founded in 1941, Josephine Herrick Project (JHP) is a volunteer service organization providing free photography programs to underserved audiences. JHP believes that cameras are transformational tools that give a voice to all people and strengthen visual literacy. Participants photograph their communities with the help of professional photographers, promoting volunteerism and self- advocacy. Through workshops, exhibitions, and publications, participants connect to the world through the visual language of photography.
