Last week, I joined African Communities Together, New York Immigration Coalition, and other groups in a march and rally in honor of World Refugee Day. We assembled in Bryant Park, marched to the United States Mission to the United Nations, and held a rally at nearby Dag Hammarskjöld Plaza right across the street from the Trump World Tower.
Earlier this past Spring, I stumbled across a gallery of street art that seemingly popped up overnight. It occupied a boarded-over vacant lot that had previously been something of an eyesore. Suddenly, here was a place for local artists to display their work. It was titled it the “Guerrilla Gallery.”
As the spring ended and the summer progressed, artists continued to contribute more of their work. As a couple of these photos illustrate, this gallery was organized by the Harlem Art Collective.
On April 15, low-wage workers and their allies took to the streets in over 200 cities across the United States demanding a $15/hour minimum wage.
Here is a gallery of photos I took of the #Fightfor15 rally in New York City.
