Nacho Hernandez's Tindouf photo exhibit in DC Wednesday
Photographer Nacho Hernandez visited the Tindouf refugee camps last year, and a week from today he'll show the pictures he took.
The photos will be on display from 11 AM to 8PM in the Rayburn Foyer, in the Rayburn House Office Building. There's a reception by 6 to 8 PM. It's co-hosted by the US-Western Sahara Foundation and Representatives Trent Franks, Tim Ryan, and Zach Wamp (good to see Zach Wamp sticking with Western Sahara). To RSVP email RSVP@venividiphoto.com
The last US-WS Foundation event I went to in Rayburn, the Aminatou Haidar reception, was great. You ought to go, because I'm sure it'll be a blast. Clever idea to put it in Congress where hopefully a few staffers and representatives will stop by and learn more about Western Sahara.
