One of the newest to join our tribe Michelle Angela Ortiz is included in a pop up exhibition entitled Revolutionary. The pop up exhibition lasts six weeks.
The portraits are stills from a video interview of community member, Cruz. Cruz lives in Philadelphia and shared his experience with ICE (Immigration and Customs Enforcement) and almost being deported. He spoke about his year long struggle with wearing a probation bracelet, being intimidated by ICE agents, and living in fear in what was once for him a city of hope. — Michelle Ortiz
