About Veena

Veena produces a show called Re:Work, which challenges the ways we see — and don’t see — labor through sharing the stories of workers, immigrants, and communities of color who don’t often make it into the spotlight.

Veena lives at the intersection of ethnography-social justice-pop culture. She earned a PhD in Sociocultural Anthropology from UCLA where she examined how race, immigration, education, and policing shape one another in 21st century America. Veena's documentary and advocacy films have been showcased broadly in festivals, college classrooms and museums. Now working in communications, she is committed to public education and making information available to all.
