Pheralyn Dove taught language skills to students at Shaw Middle School as part of the Sonia Sanchez Literacy Program.

Laureen Griffin’s project, entitled “Gender Portraiture,” invited various members of the community to pose for photographs wearing costumes that challenged gender norms. Laureen also facilitated discussions of gender issues as part of her Trans-gression group and held a forum with University of Pennsylvania professor Heather Love on the same topic.
