Acid Attack Advocacy Project

Acid Attack Advocacy Project

Lela Edgar

For the Acid Attack Advocacy Project, Lela Edgar traveled through India, photographing women who have survived acid attacks. Working with various non-profit organizations, she created a photo essay that was presented at The United Nations in 2017 and published across various news outlets with the goal of inspiring others to help protect some of the most vulnerable people on the planet. She has done various kinds of exciting work and projects, ranging from telling positive stories about women who have made it (whether that be to court, which can be a feat) or simply out of their house and back into society as well as volunteering for an important initiative on the ground.
