“It made me a better journalist and a better human being.” — Justin Sweitzer, WW2016 Staff Writer and WW2017 Graphic Designer.
What did you do last Labor Day weekend? Go to a few picnics? Wash the car? Hold down the couch? While you were doing that, eleven students from seven different colleges spent the weekend interviewing, photographing, and recording first- and second-generation immigrants to create this print book.
This holiday, why not engage in something exciting. Unique. Something your friends and family have (probably) never done. Something meaningful. Profound.
Something that will change your life.
Something that will potentially change the lives of others.
Writing Wrongs is that opportunity.
Topic of WW2018: Domestic violence | Sexual assault
