Photography as Advocacy? Panel Discussion

Photography as Advocacy?

Day Labor, Family, and the New Global Economy

A discussion about Day Labor, Family, and the New Global Economy, part of the ongoing Photography As Advocacy? series presented by the Open Society Institute, which explores how photography can be used to shape public policy and perception and to effect social change. The threats to immigrants’ rights give urgency to documenting and understanding the tensions in the personal lives of day laborers and their complex place in the temporary employment sector of the new global economy.

Columbia University School of Social Work (1255 Amsterdam Avenue)
