Center on Poverty and Inequality Sponsors “Girlhood Interrupted” at National Museum
The Center on Poverty and Inequality commissioned painter Ashley Joi and photographer Sancha McBurnie to create original works to complement the report, pieces that were displayed at a reception following the presentation. Both artists shared their perspectives with the audience.
Epstein stressed that the Center on Poverty seeks change at a system level, working to train educators and law enforcement officers. But Naomi Wadler, speaking quickly and confidently, also reminded everyone in the room of the power that lies within.
