Heather Booth: Changing The World

A 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. The film blends archival and contemporary footage with interviews with close friends, clients, political colleagues, students and others to understand this one person's legacy in progressive politics. This is a timely film that arms viewers with methods they can employ to preserve our democratic principles.
