Community Organizing

Jill Jacobs

Jill Jacobs, the executive director of T’ruah: The Rabbinic Call for Human Rights, has pushed for Jews to take an active role in social justice, from supporting health care and environmental reform to condemning torture and human rights violations.

Ros Baxandall, 1939 - 2015

Rosalyn Fraad Baxandall was my co-author on several books, my conscience and co-conspirator in all things feminist and political, and my very close friend. Ros, who died of cancer on October 13, 2015, at age 76, was one of the founders of the women’s liberation movement and a prominent activist for a range of social justice issues. Her rebellious spirit shaped her life from her school days to mere months before she passed away.

Goapele

Determined to have fuller control over her burgeoning music career, R&B singer Goapele Mohlabane formed her own independent music label, Skyblaze Recordings, in 2001.
