Northern California Tour - Stanford

On Tuesday, our 4th day of the tour, we visited Stanford. We met with different student groups throughout the day, and had a big screening at night. Our schedule was busy indeed: we had lunch at the amazing Casa Zapata, then we did a guest lecture at (Professor and Filmmaker) Jan Krawitz's "Documentary Perspectives" class, had a meeting with the students at El Centro Chicano, and then a reception with the different student and campus organizations that had sponsored the event. It was moving to see the reaction to the film from a very diverse group of students, especially from groups that have been so active around anti-sweatshop issues. Last year the Stanford "Sweatfree" campaign and their sit-in gained so much publicity that our broadcaster, PBS POV series invited students from the campaign to write something about the film on the POV website!


This event was sponsored by: The Riddell Fund and Residential Education. Collaborators: Okada, Casa Zapata, Asian American Activities Center, El Centro Chicano, Film Studies, Sweatfree Campaign, Stanford Asian American Activism Coalition, MEChA, and CSRE.
Robert talks to Anne Takemoto, Resident Fellow at the Okada House, who put all the event together!
