Time: 6:00 pm | Room 110, Boalt Hall

Read "Migration: Alone in the Night" by Levi Bridges in the Fall 2015 Berkeley Review of Latin American Studies.

Every night, as most of us head home, janitors across America, many of them women, begin their night shift. They are often alone or isolated in empty buildings — and vulnerable to sexual violence. 53 minutes.

Following the screening, CLAS chair Harley Shaiken will moderate a discussion with Lowell Bergman, Andrés Cediel, and Daffodil Altan.

Lowell Bergman is the Reva and David Logan Distinguished Chair in Investigative Reporting and Director of the Investigative Reporting Program (IRP) at UC Berkeley’s Graduate School of Journalism. Andrés Cediel is a producer at the IRP. Daffodil Altan is a producer at The Center for Investigative Reporting.

“Rape on the Night Shift” is a production of FRONTLINE (PBS), Univision, Reveal from The Center for Investigative Reporting (CIR), the Investigative Reporting Program (IRP) at UC Berkeley, and KQED. 

Co-sponsored by the Center for Latin American Studies, the Investigative Reporting Program of the Graduate School of Journalism, and the International Human Rights Law Clinic at Berkeley Law School.
