the globe to share a photo portrait along with a statement about what they
stand for, many countries, cities and individuals around the world responded.
Juarez decided to unite in aglobal photography action called BE
to ignite awareness around the change we aim to realize. As part of TED
prize-winner JR’s Inside Out Project, our project invites people around the
world to share black and white photo portraits, along with a statement about
what change and vision they represent.
