Visit the Lost Opportunities Exhibit 

Russell Senate Office Building Rotunda  

January 27-31, 2014 | 7 a.m. - 8 p.m. 

In the spring of 2013, cuts to the Federal budget from the Budget Control Act of 2011 - sequestration - shuttered the window of opportunity for thousands of our most vulnerable children. Curators Without Borders sent photographers to follow the stories of rural, urban, tribal, and migrant Head Start programs and families in five states. 

Cohosted by NHSA, the National Migrant Seasonal Head Start Association and the National Indian Head Start Directors Association, the Lost Opportunities exhibit portrays the strength of each Head Start program and the dignity of the families in the face of painful and often devastating disruptions caused by the sequestration cuts. 

We invite you to visit the exhibit on display in the Russell Senate Office Building Rotunda January 27-31. 

Since the summer of 1965, Head Start has represented a national commitment to children living in poverty – a commitment to the belief that every child, regardless of circumstances at birth, has the ability to succeed in school and in life if given a window of opportunity during the early years.

Please Read. I recently photographed Diana Garmon-Spears for an important story published in NewScientist . 

"As an African American woman living in Chicago, the dice are loaded against Garmon-Spears. Across the US, death rates among black women diagnosed with breast cancer are 37 per cent higher than for whites, but in Chicago the difference is an astonishing 68 per cent."
