Portraits for Change exhibit and video

This unique exhibit of portraits and biographies gives voice to the different narratives associated with homelessness and life on the streets. You are invited to reevaluate your understanding of poverty and homelessness and challenge the negative stereotypes that homeless people face. Presented in partnership by Real Change* and the students of Vicky Lawson’s Honors seminar “Citizenship Acts to Challenge Poverty.”
