As the external communications department for frontline human rights defenders, we produce iconic photography and films, centering and uplifting the voices of often-marginalized and vulnerable people, and their champions who provide life-saving care and leadership around the world.

When we partner with human rights organizations, we adhere to strict informed consent protocols - in the preferred language of each person we photograph. Our final images and films are shared at no-cost with our partners as we co-create strategic media placements through impactful, authentic, and ethical story-telling. The support of people like you helps us to implement and drive change in our culture.                           


In 2019, we will examine Poverty in America - the root causes, impact, and solutions that will save lives. The debut film by our founder Platon, ‘My Body Is Not A Weapon’ is set to premiere on the film festival circuit. We will also be uplifting emerging and existing leaders around the world with a new ‘Leadership’ portfolio. In each of our 2019 portfolios, we will launch social impact strategies and advocacy campaigns. Policy follows culture - and with your support, we will build a stronger foundation to raise awareness, change culture, and influence policy so that we all may experience and build a brighter, more just future.

Your support is critical, and we welcome your expertise and friendship. The People’s Portfolio is a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization.
