Dear All,

Union member Mayli faced sexual harassment and racism from her supervisor.
She told senior Harvard managers and HR, and was accused of lying. The boss
was permitted to cut her hours and pay in half, isolate her from
co-workers, and set her up for unfair discipline. When she reached out for
help to officials including President Drew Faust, Mayli was threatened in
writing with termination. Just a few days later, the boss told her she was
fired; the only new "offense" in her termination letter was that she was
allegedly at work half an hour *early*. Mayli was marched out of the office
by uniformed Harvard cops, wearing guns, in front of her colleagues.

Tomorrow, Thu 4/26, at 12:30 pm, Mayli's supporters will picket
<https://www.facebook.com/events/1617653094997730/> her former workplace,
the Smith Campus Center, at 1350 Mass Ave, Cambridge (Harvard Sq Red Line
MBTA stop). Please join us!

Harvard has callously challenged Mayli's unemployment benefits, depriving
her of needed income while she awaits an appeal hearing. You can help by

forward this message as widely as possible!

In Solidarity,
