She covered the 1992 riots in Los Angeles; the Cesar Chavez movement for migrant worker’s rights and, for ten years, worked with the Navajo Nation in Tuba City and Window Rock, Arizona. Her “in the field” investigations include: Human Rights Watch, The Fund For Peace, Concierge, N.O.W. (National Organization of Women), The Africa Project, The Los Angeles School District, Tap-Tap, The Los Angeles Conservancy and US Doctors Without Borders. Art Miles Mural Project has used Lampert’s images to represent them internationally. In 1994, Lampert was hired to document the Soldier of Fortune convention at the Sands Hotel, in Las Vegas. That assignment provided a rare opportunity to photograph mercenaries, and future war profiteers. For five years she served as media director and photographer for Voices of African Mothers at the United Nations.
