America 2017: Photography by Trish Palermo

After interviewing members of the Minneapolis community, Trish Palermo, UMN Junior and Human Rights Program Assistant, created the following project to reflect the candid emotion response to life in America 2017.

"Recognize that when you say “life will go on” that’s not a reality for many. Do what you can to cope and move forward, but don’t tell other people they aren’t coping fast enough. Don’t tell people their fear is invalid. Do what you can to help. Listen to people. Use your voice. Show up and be an ally for the communities that are hurting." - Trish Palermo
