Heather Booth on Film

“To be an organizer you have to love people and hate injustice,” says Heather Booth, an organizer since the civil rights, anti-Vietnam war and women’s movements of the 1960s. She created JANE, the pre- Roe underground abortion service. Today, she continues her activism and leadership training social change organizers. She and her work are the subject of Lilly Rivlin’s new film “Heather Booth: Changing the World.” heatherbooththefilm.com
