A Long Walk Home Fundraiser hosted by Gloria Steinem with John Legend
April 28, 2012
Just when I thought that meeting legendary guitarist Ronnie Wood was going to be the highlight of my year, I get invited to photograph feminist Gloria Steinem and 9 time Grammy Award musician John Legend. Gloria opened her upper east side home to guests and friends to help raise funds and awareness for A Long Walk Home (ALWH), a non-profit organization that uses the visual and performing arts as a method for healing girls who have been sexually abused or violated. The evening was filled with some of these girls performing poems, reading literature and raising awareness for the ALWH. At the end, here is what Gloria left us.
“We must establish reproductive freedom as a basic fundamental right. There’s no more important work that any of us can do than untangling this violence at its source, with art and humanity.” — Gloria Steinem
