Heather Booth: Changing the World

Heather Booth is the most influential person you have never heard of. Released by Women Make Films, this newest film by critically acclaimed filmmaker Lilly Rivlin traces the ongoing legacy of activist and community organizer Heather Booth. In telling the story of Heather’s life and work, the film presents an overview of 50 years of the progressive movement.

From a politically conscious college student who began her career in 1964 registering voters in Mississippi at the height of the Civil Rights movement, Heather became the go-to strategist for causes ranging from child care to women’s rights to immigration reform and advisor to leaders including Julian Bond and Senator Elizabeth Warren. This film is an urgent response to the current administration, when many are wondering how to make their voices heard as civil rights and women’s rights are under attack. The intention of the film is to provide viewers the tools for community organizing that will inspire activism and ignite change!

We are delighted to have Heather Booth coming to lead the discussion and call to action – an event not to be missed!

RSVP is encouraged to ensure enough food for all:
