Justice for Janitors Makes History!
On April 29, the Kalmanovitz Initiative at Georgetown University launch their digital history project on the DC Justice for Janitors Campaign. Justice for Janitors changed the lives of thousands of people and set a new model for winning in the labor movement. Since 2010, at Georgetown we’ve been collecting the stories of DC Justice for Janitors—union activists, politicians, employers, community leaders, and janitors themselves. I played a fairly significant role in organizing the actions and the bridge blockades. I have worked on many a janitor campaign since include Denver, LA, Boston and Houston. I learned so much from the janitors and organizers in this work and in many ways it has helped me build the template for what I call Kicking Corporate Booty.
