Event Details

Heather Booth, Changing the World, A film by Lilly Rivlin

Date: 
Mon, 11/13/2017 - 6:00pm

From registering voters with Fannie Lou Hamer during the Civil Rights Movement, championing women's right to choose in the 70s, to playing a key role in passing the Dodd-Frank Act, Heather Booth has been at the heart of progressive movements for over fifty years. 

Building a movement is a nebulous concept to most, but for Heather, organizing to lead tangible social change involves actionable steps and proven strategies. In 1973, Heather founded Midwest Academy, a training school for organizers where she has taught her theory of change to thousands of activists across the country. 

A film screening of a documentary made about Heather's life will follow at 6pm. Dinner will be provided. 

This event is sponsored by Tisch College, Tufts Hillel, Fletcher Students of Color & Allies, Tufts Philosophy Department, Tufts Political Science Department, Peace & Justice Studies, Pi Sigma Alpha, and Tufts Women’s, Gender & Sexuality Studies.
