Renée C. Byer brings her expanded interactive photography exhibition and call to action to eradicate extreme poverty, featured on CBS Sunday Morning and on National Geographic's PROOF blog, to Cosumnes River College Art Gallery.

Byer first introduced this interactive tool youbridge.it as a keynote speaker at UNESCO's Global Women Leaders' Forum in Sofia, Bulgaria.
