Veronica Lagunas in one of the offices she cleans. | Still from "Nightshift"

Veronica: Custodian

A night custodian at one of L.A.’s downtown skyscrapers, Veronica is one of the many anonymous faces that clean up office cubicles once the daytime shift ends for the rest of us. An immigrant from El Salvador, Veronica finds peace and quiet at night, but also, at times, danger. Learn more about her discomfiting experience with sexual harassment on the job, and how she spends her time off during the day doing advocacy work to help other women like her defend themselves verbally and physically.
