The life and struggles of the invisible migrant workers that make sure offices and classrooms are clean and tidy before professors and students arrive for their morning classes at some of London’s most prestigious universities. It shows the Unison union and how their struggle for justice, human and labor rights gets wide support.
Claiming Our Voice (21 min.) (2013) (USA) Directed by: Jennifer Pritheeva
This film shares the stories of Andolan, an organization founded and led by immigrant women low-wage workers as a means to support each other and collectively organize against exploitative work conditions. The film follows the women as they create, rehearse and refine acts for their first popular multi-lingual theater performance. Claiming Our Voice seeks to break community silence by allowing women to (literally) set the stage for how their stories will be told.
