About this Event

The afternoon begins with an opportunity to meet Napa’s activist organizations and their organizers, followed by the documentary film. After the viewing, Heather will take the stage to give sage advice, answer questions and address some of the issues facing our own Napa community.

For those interested in continuing the conversation with Heather, CIA Copia’s culinary team will be offering a “60’s” activist dinner.

About the documentary: Renowned organizer and activist Heather Booth began her remarkable career at the height of the Civil Rights movement. Through her life and work, this inspiring film explores many of the pivotal moments in progressive movements that altered our history over the last fifty years, from her involvement with Fannie Lou Hamer and the Freedom Summer Project, to her founding of the JANE Underground in 1964, to her personal relationships with respected leaders such as Julian Bond and Senator Elizabeth Warren. Featuring interviews from close friends, clients, political colleagues and current Midwest Academy students, HEATHER BOOTH: CHANGING THE WORLD explores Heather’s legacy in progressive politics and organizing.

At a time when many are wondering how to make their voices heard, when civil and women’s rights are under attack, Lilly Rivlin’s acclaimed documentary is an empowering look at how social change happens.
