Help us re-define “the shooter”…
GIVE ‘EM A SHOT is a non-profit organization that seeks to give young black men (ages 8-13) living in inner city communities a shot at developing a healthy perspective of how they view themselves, their communities and others through the use of photography and ultimately reduce their chances of being involved in gun violence. The concept is simple, instead of shooting a gun…shoot a camera!
The GIVE ‘EM A SHOT program is currently being piloted within the Old Fourth Ward (Boulevard & Parkway Area) community…what better a community to start in than your own!
How you can help GIVE ‘EM A SHOT:
▪ GIVE money – We are fundraising for photography equipment, awareness and outreach materials, and instructional resources.
▪ GIVE equipment – If you have any functional photography equipment that you are thinking about letting go…we’ll take it!
▪ GIVE your talent – We seek to partner with local photographers around the Atlanta area to assist with facilitating workshops and mentorship.
▪ GIVE your work – We plan to organize an annual fundraising exhibit at which you can donate a “shot” of your work to be auctioned off to help raise money for the program.
