Colonia Introduction
Colonias are “unincorporated, impoverished
settlements with substandard living conditions along
the U.S.Mexico border. Mexican Americans living
in colonias are one of the most disadvantaged, hard-to-
reach minority groups in the United States.”

What is Photovoice?
Photovoice is a participatory health promotion
strategy in which people use cameras to document
their health and work realities. As participants engage
in a group process of critical reflection, they may
advocate for change in their communities by using the
power of their images and stories to communicate with
policy makers.”
