Hosted by Resistance Film Series of the Northampton Committee to Stop the Wars and The Resistance Center for Peace and Justice

When:  Wednesday, March 28, 6:30-8:30 pm
Where:  Forbes Library, 20 West, St, Northampton


What:  Documentary about Heather Booth, activist and community organizer.  This documentary is a compelling look at how social change happens, with details of strategies--when many are wondering how to make their voices heard, as civil rights and women’s rights are under attack—through the life of one renowned community organizer whose remarkable career helped to impact the most pivotal moments in progressive movements over the last 50 years: from her involvement with Fannie Lou Hamer and the Mississippi Freedom Project, to her founding of the JANE (abortion) Underground in 1964, to her personal relationships with respected leaders such as Julian Bond and Senator Elizabeth Warren. .
