A powerful social action campaign, Voices 4 Change Project, has come to San Bernardino's Westside to galvanize community action toward restoration of health and safety and counter a multitude of social and health disparities. The project applies the recognized capacity of photography and poetry to effectively reach and connect to people emotionally while serving as a platform to achieve a transformation of individuals and environments.

Photovoice is highly flexible and can be adapted to specific goals, different groups and communities and distinct policy and public health issues. The photovoice technique has three aims:

  • To enable people to record and reflect their community's strengths and problems.
  • To promote dialogue about important issues through discussion and photographs.
  • To bridge the gap between what policymakers think is important and what people at the grassroots level think is important.

Westside residents that live within the Operation Phoenix boundaries (20 block region from Baseline to California to Highland to Macey) are invited to participate in the photovoice experience by attending a Voice 4 Change Project orientation on May 29th, 6:30 - 7: 30 pm, at New Hope Life Center, 1505 W. Highland Avenue, 92411.
