About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Need a place in Feb for YDS conf and my photography exhibit

ABOUT ME

I will be having a photography exhibition in NY at the YDS (Young Democratic Socialists) conference in NY Feb 16-18. I will need a place to stay Feb 8th-20th.
Noam Chomsky, Barbara Ehrenreich and Gayatri Spivak will be among some of the speakers at the conference.
My project is called "Unseen America"...
I've interviewed and photographed people that have come to this country looking for a better life..
asylum seekers, refugees.
I want to show through the words and faces of these people that in the end we are all human..
that the pain these people go through should be lightened.
I really want to help make a difference and hopefully people will see the need for change and equality.
you can find more info on the conference here..

I am dead broke so if you could let me stay for free or something affordable you have no idea how much that would be appreciated.

I can give you references and my driver's license number if you would like
