I’m contributing eleven portraits to an upcoming book. It’s all about collective bargaining and how it can be used by more than just labor unions, and Rubynell is one of workers whose story will be featured in the book—along with Allyson, Bettie, Cynthia, Deloris, Heather, Jeff, Kimberly, Lidia, Sanchioni, Sarita, and Smiley.

For more about Rubynell and my encounter with her, check out this blog post. You can watch the making of her portrait.
