In early 2020 the North Carolina Justice Center, Health Advocacy Project decided to embark on a PhotoVoice project centered on documenting the state of Healthcare in certain rural NC counties. When the Covid 19 Pandemic hit in March, the project took on a different look and scope. We opened up the participants to include any part of the state and did all of our meetings via Zoom.  In the end, we had 9 participants from both urban and rural communities across North Carolina. We asked them to show us with their cameras what life looked like in the time of Covid. The resulting photos are a wide-ranging view of what people experienced during one of the most challenging times in our country's history.


Health Advocacy Project

The Health Advocacy Project works to ensure all North Carolinians, including individuals and families with low incomes, racial and ethnic minorities, and rural communities, have meaningful access to high quality, affordable, equitable, and comprehensive health care so that children, adults, and families have better health outcomes and productive lives.

Why NC PhotoVoice

Our mission is to eliminate poverty in North Carolina by ensuring that every household in the state has access to the resources, services, and fair treatment it needs to achieve economic security.

North Carolina Justice Center

NC PhotoVoice has the following three objectives:


  1. Encourage people to record and document their community and personal lives 

  2. Promote dialogue around community issues and strengths through group discussions of photographs

  3. Reach policymakers through photography
