Dorie Hagler has photographed maximum-security prisoners at Graterford Prison in Collegeville, PA, coffee workers in Mexico while on assignment for Coffee Kids, and strikers as part of the Black Lives Matter protests. She recently started me&EVE, a project that combines contemporary portraiture of women with their commentary on issues surrounding equal rights for women and the current state of politics. Many of those photographed participated in the Women’s March on Washington and in other cities in early 2017 and this project garnered press from NYMAG, Upworthy, Forbes, and The New York Times. Hagler is also co-producing a documentary film about Criminal Justice Reform.

Mother Jones is a left-wing and politically progressive American magazine that does independent and investigative reporting on politics, the environment, human rights, and culture.
