About The Lexicon of Human Dignity

The Lexicon of Human Dignity has asked 11 Thought Leaders from the Atlanta area, across many disciplines, to contribute their valued experience to the Lexicon of Human Dignity Information Artworks. By illuminating the vocabulary of Human Dignity, and with it the conversation about the challenges facing our neighbors; their insights help educate, engage and activate people to pay closer attention to how we might support their Human Dignity.

Information Artworks are the cornerstone of this project. They provide easy to understand picture-based stories of how our Thought Leaders are working in their respective fields to support Human Dignity in our neighbors. The Lexicon of Human Dignity displays these works at community-driven POP UP ART SHOWS hosted by a wide array of organizations across the Atlanta Region.
