Heather Booth: Changing the World
JWA sponsors a screening of “Heather Booth: Changing the World,” by the Boston Jewish Film Festival on Monday, November 13, 2017. Activist Heather Booth has played a role in forging civil rights since her teenage years, and continues to educate community organizers through the Midwest Academy that she founded. Directed by Lilly Rivlin, this documentary is both a tribute to Booth herself—as an inspiration and a role model in the current climate for activists and the average citizen alike—and a guide on how to make a difference.
The screening is followed by a conversation with Heather Booth herself and director Lilly Rivlin, moderated by Judith Rosenbaum, JWA Executive Director.Heather Booth: Changing the World
