HOPE 22

Hope 22 is a local Kansas City photography project that brings awareness to the fact that 22 veterans commit suicide a day. Our mission is to raise awareness around our country’s suicide epidemic. We seek to educate the public on mental health issues such as PTSD, as well as to offer local resources for those in need.

 

The Dark to Light exhibition is a fundraising event featuring the pictures of twenty-two veterans. It will go on display at the National World War I Museum and Memorial during Veterans Day weekend, November 11-12, 2017.
