A Photovoice Exhibit by seven Lincoln youth will display photographs with written narratives to give voice to their perspectives and experiences as refugees. The project is organized by Nebraska Extension with a 4-H True Leaders in Equity grant. Three youth refugees who participated in a Photovoice project in 2021 decided to lead a Photovoice of their own. They chose to focus their Photovoice project on young adult refugees, particularly the mental health impacts of dual navigation — which is the immigration of oneself while also assisting one’s family in the immigration process.

The public will have three opportunities to view the exhibit. All are no cost.

Photo shown: Flags in the stairwell of Lincoln High School captured by a Photovoice participant to emphasize diversity and acceptance.

Additional Public Info:
