Brown University, Providence, RI

The living wage campaign at Brown University has faded, and a city campaign set in Providence has taken its place. Students and organizers reflect on the success and failures of the Brown campaign, the importance (and difficulty) of working with workers, and how city campaigns differs from campus campaigns.
