Alice Proujansky, an alum of the Department of Photography & Imaging, created the photo essay "Parenting During a Pandemic" for The Nation with the support of the Magnum Foundation and the Economic Hardship Reporting Project. From Proujansky's intro to the article:

"Covid-19 works like a highlighter, making our long-standing societal inequities more visible. This crisis has so far been most deadly for people suffering from environmental racism, regular racism, and the health and financial impacts of surviving poverty and a profit-driven health care system. And now, it’s revealing the unsustainable burden of a whole sector of unremunerated work."
