Thank you for your interest in The People's Portfolio fundraising event. We are currently at capacity and collecting names for our waitlist. Someone from our team will notify you if space becomes available:
About Dr. Mukwege
Dr. Mukwege, founder of Panzi Hospital and Foundation in the Democratic Republic of Congo, is a nominee for this year's Nobel Peace Prize. He has devoted three decades to treating women who have suffered from sexual violence and calling for their perpetrators to be brought to justice. The People's Portfolio organized a mission to the DRC to work with Dr. Mukwege on a portfolio of advocacy photography about sexual violence that appeared as a TIME magazine exclusive and was featured in the Netflix documentary, "Abstract: The Art of Design."
About The People’s Portfolio
The People’s Portfolio is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that uses multi-media storytelling, by artist Platon, to document humanitarian efforts around the globe. By partnering with advocacy NGOs and a global network of leading media outlets, our goal is to spotlight emerging human rights defenders and give them an enhanced leadership platform to realize their mission.
Platon, a portrait photographer and human rights activist, has photographed many of the world's most influential people, including all living US presidents. As part of this inspiring evening, Platon will share stories, both uplifting and engaging, behind his images of global leaders and humanitarian advocates.
