I travelled to Harrisburg, PA to create this video for the National Guestworker Alliance. While organizers Nelson Motto and Sarah Dh worked with the young workers, I began shooting this short film. After 5 days the youth went on strike and this video was released the same day, featuring footage from the strike. I also led the workers in a workshop to create their own signs for the protest. I worked closely with the Communications Director at NGA, Stephen Boykewich, who helped edit the piece. Federal officials and lawyers contacted the workers the next day.
