Michelle Jones is the Project Director of University at Buffalo Liberty Partnerships Program. She is also a graduate of the Open Buffalo Emerging Leaders program (2015 class). Jones is very passionate about the arts and will use photography as her medium to bring an increased awareness to the public health issue of domestic violence in the city of Buffalo. Jones’ advocacy stems from gaining her own voice back, having been impacted herself at the young age of 19. Her work creates a platform for those affected both directly and indirectly to speak out against domestic violence and share a message of hope. The project, entitled From the Inside Outwill culminate in a “traveling” public art installation, which will ultimately be a permanent fixture within the community.
