Justice for Janitors DC: A Digital History Project

Justice for Janitors changed the lives of thousands of people. Since 2010, at Georgetown we’ve been collecting the stories of DC Justice for Janitors—union activists, politicians, employers, community leaders, and janitors themselves. We’ve dug up old newspaper clippings and video footage and collected photographs and flyers, and assembled all of it into a digital history website. Watch a trailer for the project (embedded left) and check out the website here!
