Five on Friday: Tu voz importa / Your voice matters Photovoice Project

Five on Friday: Tu voz importa / Your voice matters Photovoice Project

This is a very exciting weekend for our Chico, California office – Tu voz importa photography exhibit is opening at the Valene L. Smith Museum of Anthropology! This exhibit will feature the photos and stories of Latinx women and youth from around the Northern Sacramento Valley who participated in MCN’s photovoice project with photographer Robyne Hayes. The museum is celebrating the opening weekend with a special panel discussion on Saturday, February 26th at 1pm. Northern Californians, please join us – and spread the word with your community! The exhibit runs through May 6th.

And on to the rest of Five on Friday! Here are five recommendations from MCN staff on issues of health equity that you may have missed.
