About

When Carmen Castillo, an immigrant Dominican housekeeper at a Providence R.I hotel, wins a seat on the City Council, she battles deep-rooted notions of who is qualified to run for political office. Despite personal setbacks, Carmen takes her advocacy for low income workers from the margins to the center of city politics. An eye-opening look at entrenched power in American democracy, and one brave advocate for a living wage
