Daily work

This is Raymundo Orozco, 11. He attends Esperanza elementary school in one of East Oakland's roughest neighborhoods. Although he's been in several fights at school, he is participating in a Safe Ambassador's program so that he can help make his school a safer place.

This is Erin Neel. She runs "Oakland Unwrapped," an online marketplace for local artists and businesses. I photographed her in her beautiful studio apartment in downtown Oakland.

Do you have any other photos from the Safe School Ambassadors training?

I am a staff at that school who participated in the training and would love to be able to distribute the photos or create a montage of them as a way of affirming the students who participated.

They also would probably get a kick out of finding themselves online.
