Brenda Ann Kenneally will partner with The Sanctuary for Independent Media on “Upstate Girls: What Became of Collar City,” a publication and series of workshops that explore how economic circumstances, disparities in education, access to healthcare, motherhood, and the criminal justice system have affected the lives of young women in Troy, New York. The book and workshops will combine historic and contemporary photographs, drawings, journals, and scrapbooks to compare young women's experiences in Troy in the late 19th century with those of today. The aim of the project is to encourage and provide an opportunity for young women in Troy to critically explore the factors that influence their lives.
