Over the course of the past 6 months, powerful photography by our grant winners has traveled the world, stirring audiences in the U.S., China, India, New Zealand and Australia. Today, even more important plans are in motion.

On April 8th and 9th, The Alexia Foundation will be holding a first of its kind workshop, Latin America: Stories That Drive Change. Co-sponsored by The University of Miami School of Communication, a pioneer in today’s visual journalism, the seminar will be held at The University of Miami. The workshop will celebrate the work of Latin American and Latino photographers. It will also work, individually and in small groups, with visual journalists on how to make their photojournalism matter. Your support can help make this seminar a success.

As you receive this message, 2016 Professional Winner Aaron Vincent Elkaim is in the Amazon River Basin documenting the destruction of one of the world’s most important ecosystems. Elkaim is on the front lines, so that we can act to protect humanity’s invaluable natural resource. Your generosity made it possible. In March, we will choose six vital projects to fund. We encourage you to join us in supporting these passionate storytellers.

As the Alexia Foundation moves forward, we see clearly that the environment needs our attention. Water is arguably the most pressing issue of the 21st century. Alexia wants to do its part.

Will you help us address today’s most compelling issues and prepare tomorrow’s photojournalists for the challenges of the future? Make it happen. Donate today.

Sincerely,
Aphrodite and Peter Tsairis
