Film Screening- Occupation: Harvard Living Wage Sit-In

Film Description: A dynamic story of how students and immigrant janitors took on—and defeated—one of the most powerful corporations in the world, Occupationdocuments thehistoric three-week sit-in by the Harvard Living Wage Campaign. The Campaign won unprecedented gains for low-wage workers at the world’s richest university, and catapulted the living wage movement to the center of public attention. In demonstrating one local response to corporate power in an age of globalization, Occupation powerfully depicts how people from dramatically different backgrounds were able to raise their hands together in victory. It is narrated by Ben Affleck.
