Barack Obama will be visiting Harvard Square on the afternoon of Wednesday, March 5th to attend a “DNC Roundtable.” The event is being hosted by a DNC supporter, likely in or near the Charles Hotel between 3pm and 6pm, based on road closures and the limited closure of the Charles Hotel parking garage.
The event’s 25 attendees are major DNC contributors, each having donated up to $32,400 to the party. Attendees will discuss plans to raise the national minimum wage from $7.25 per hour to $10.10 per hour, in addition to the Obama’s executive order to make the same wage change for federal workers effective 2015.
Before the roundtable, the president will be visiting Central Connecticut State University along with Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick to lead a rally to raise the minimum wage.
After the roundtable, President Obama will be attending a dinner in Boston at the Artists for Humanity EpiCenter. The dinner has 70 attendees who each paid between $5,000 to $20,000 for a ticket as a fundraiser for the DNC.
Correction: The Charles Hotel parking garage will not be completely closed.
