The six organizations selected for this inaugural project of the Lucie Witness initiative, a collaboration between Minor Matters and Lucie Foundation dedicated to fostering intergenerational conversations in photography, are some of the longest-running youth photography programs in the United States.

With successful publication, each participating photographer will receive at least two copies of the book; all net proceeds once expenses are covered will be split equally among the organizations, with a priority to provide a cash honorarium to each photographer, and any balance to be used to the institution’s greatest needs.
