PROMOTING HUMAN DIGNITY
The Human Thread Foundation is an international organization founded by acclaimed humanitarian photographer Lisa Kristine. The mission of the foundation is to educate the public and drive awareness about human dignity and human trafficking through interactive exhibitions, educational programming, and global awareness campaigns.
We envision a world that is unified through imagery – where one can educate one’s mind and foster compassion. We seek to ignite ideas that promote understanding and build a bridge of global peace. Human connection and the importance of respect in our world are central to our vision; we hope to create and distribute compelling visual storytelling about humanity that brings the world closer. We inspire connection, education and change. We aspire to touch and enhance the lives of millions of viewers worldwide through our work.
The Human Thread Foundation encourages values such as integrity, compassion, collaboration and commitment through engagement with our partners, our supporters, and most importantly, the subjects featured in our work. These are values that contribute to respect and peace, locally, nationally and globally.
“…images [that] take us behind the veil to the atrocities of slavery. To respect human dignity for those from every walk of life, business leaders must embrace our unique role in upholding the precepts of equality, belonging and purpose. When we do so, together, we can enact powerful change.”
WHY I DO THIS WORK
The work is an invitation for all people to come together. For us all to see one another as our fellow brothers and sisters… Life is not just about ourselves. It’s about all of us. We are the community of humanity.
