Join us in celebrating our year-end exhibition by the Bronx Junior Photo League (BJPL), the Bronx Documentary Center’s afterschool photojournalism program for middle and high school students. The BJPL uses photography, writing, and research to explore social justice issues and prepare for college and future careers. On view will be photo essays and multimedia stories on environmental justice, sexual harassment, homelessness, access to healthy foods, LGBTQI+ activism, the opioid crisis, and more.
