WORLD: Women Owning Responsibility for Learning and Doing

Human trafficking was the topic of yesterday's  WORLD Series at Russell Sage College in Troy, NY .   Debbie Fowler, Patty Carley, and Sr. Francine Dempsey provided students with information about human trafficking and spoke about their non-profit Eyes Wide Open NENY, Inc., which consists of a community of advocates dedicated to providing restorative care for women survivors of sex trafficking in the Capital Region.

I was proud to have my work included with other like-minded activist-artists on display during the lecture.  The found objects I used in my "I am..." series were upcycled from EWO's store, Her Treasure Box, which is an arts and craft thrift shop in Schenectady.
