2017 NAFSA Annual Conference & Expo in Los Angeles, CA

This was my sixth year photographing theNAFSA Annual Conference & Expo.  NAFSA: Association of International Educators is the leading organization committed to international education and exchange, working to advance policies and practices that build global citizens with the knowledge and skills they need to succeed in today's interconnected world.

Given recent changes to immigration policies, this was a very interesting and busy year for this year's attendees.  The plenary keynote speakers came from a very diverse background such as Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Abigail Disney, and the first Muslim woman to win the Nobel Peace Prize, Shirin Ebadi,
