Friday, March 11 – Sunday, March 13 – Free film streaming
Sunday March 13th at 7 PM – Zoom discussion with Heather Booth moderated by MJFF’s Barbara Merson 

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, as well as a manual on how to become an organizer.

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.  Watch the trailer here!
