Occupy Boston Announcement-Harvard University

Dear All,
This Thursday evening at 7:30 pm, Harvard University workers will participate in a panel discussion on discrimination in employment at the world's richest university. You're invited! Hear from workers who perform such essential tasks as delivering mail, serving students food, and maintaining Harvard's properties, and who have been disciplined and/or terminated for discriminatory reasons. The event is being organized by a coalition of students and workers at Harvard, who are deeply disturbed by consistent and credible reports of discrimination on the basis of race, gender, country of origin, sexual preference and ability. Such discrimination not only harms the workers who are directly affected, but also creates an unsafe environment for all workers, students, and members of the wider community. Learn how you can help hold Harvard accountable for the treatment of those who make the university function. The discussion will take place at the Democracy Center, 45 Mount Auburn Street in Cambridge (steps from the Harvard Square Red Line MBTA station). The Facebook event is here. Please forward this message as widely as possible.

In Solidarity,
