Roses Too: Fast-Food In Focus
Fast-food In Focus is a series of photo and filmmaking workshops for local fast-food workers taught by filmmakers Leo Maco and Francisco Nuñez. This partnership gives workers the tools to create potent imagery of their lived experiences and uplift their struggle against unsafe working conditions, poverty wages, wage theft, and sexual harassment. The project culminates with a public exhibition of photos and a short documentary. Fast-food In Focus creates meaningful opportunities for artists, develops workers as leaders, produces visual art, and community events, and builds solidarity through art-making.
