Things to think about: 

  • Where: You'd need a space the size of a classroom size or larger to host this photo exhibit.  A community center, church, library, local college, or similar community space are great options. All 24 of the 6-foot by 2-foot banners must be displayed together, so you’ll need a lot of wall space or some temporary dividers or cables where you can hang the banners.

  • When: While you can keep the photo exhibit displayed up for a few days or even a few weeks, we suggest hosting a reception on one day/evening to invite community leaders to say a few words and create fellowship among attendees. We especially want members of the U.S. Congress and their staff people to attend!

  • Partnerships: What organizations, nonprofits, educational institutions, or advocacy groups in the area might want to collaborate with you? 

  • Funding: While it doesn't cost much, we suggest hosting a small reception with snacks on a certain day or evening of the photo exhibit.  

  • U.S. Senators and U.S. Congressperson: Let us know who your members of Congress are, and we can help determine if it makes sense to invite them to the exhibit and coordinate with their offices and staff.)
