East-West Sylvan Middle School is the East Campus of Portland’s West Sylvan Middle School. It is unique in that it is exclusively for sixth graders from both Chapman and Forest Park.
At first glance, the school looks almost abandoned from it’s slight rundown look. The school is also on the smaller side, so it most likely has a more refined and miniscule student body. (side-note: I actually thought it was abandoned the first time I came across the school, so the fact that it is up and running is a huge shock to me)

From July 24th-28th, I had the opportunity to travel to Philadelphia for the Democratic National Convention. This collection of photos are taken by me, of my community: grassroots organizers who want to make real change.
