Hi Rena Gropper, 


I haven't used this Sfaa site in a couple of years but am searching US culture-oriented people with experience with the Rom, either in the US or in Europe. I am hoping to develop a photoessay regarding education in relation to Rom children and their families. I've been thinking of doing a project in the US first to then consider a related project on Roma children/education in a Romance language country.

I don't know how old your post is here or if this will reach you so will search your contact in another way as well.

Looking forward to hearing from you!
