Nature’s War on Mozambique

Rage and Repeat

Putting a Face on Displacement

"More than 68 million people around the globe have been forced to flee their homes due to armed conflict, persecution, and extreme poverty. The numbers are staggering, and many feel helpless to do anything about it. But our alumnae/i, faculty, and students are making the plight of refugees visible-- helping with resettlement efforts, working to bring peace to violent 'hot spots,' and using their skills to tell the very human stories beyond the headlines." -Elizabeth Randolph, Editor, Vassar Quarterly

Human Trafficking

The World's Conflict Zones Create the Ripest Conditions 

In 2017, more than 3,500 sex trafficking cases were reported to the National Human Trafficking Resource Center, and thousands of cases go unreported because far too often the victims of trafficking have been silenced through a fear of recriminations and violence by their handlers.

Life After War Series: Trapped

Life After War: Trapped is a collection of portraits from countries around the world where corruption is so corrosive, human degradation is a thriving industry. The abuse, abduction, sale, trade, and disappearance of men, women and children operate with impunity. In some arenas, the targets are selected groups; in others, entire populations. Among the complicit: governments, gangs, militias, and private business, all parties to the trade on human life. For the 30 years I've been chronicling societies struggling to come to life after war, degradation has been the precursor to greater conflict. In these turbulent nations, the world’s traffickers find their human resources. And the cycle continues.
