The City College Cultural Awareness Center will host a World Homeless Day exhibit on Oct. 10, with a presentation of a slideshow about Sacramento’s homeless population by Francisco Dominquez, a City College alumnus and nationally known photographer.

Dominquez has documented the plight of society’s downtrodden for the past 20 years. He has worked with Native American people and has used his photographs to document and call attention to the injustices along the United States and Mexican border.

Victoria Henderson, coordinator of the Cultural Awareness Center, says Dominquez, “has a story for every photograph he has ever taken.”

Dominquez has long been a fixture in the Sacramento area. Last year, he appeared on a panel with Sister Libby, director of Loaves and Fishes in Sacramento, an organization that aims to help the homeless find shelter and solve problems, and Steve Watters, the president of Safe Ground, an organization that advocates for homeless people who camp along the American River.

The event will take place from noon-1:30 p.m. in the CAC and everyone is welcome.
