The most influential person you’ve never heard of

“When I asked how to get organized, I was told two words. Heather Booth.”

-Elizabeth Warren, US Senator

We’re excited to present at the RESULTS International Conference a screening of the new film Heather Booth: Changing the World.



By critically acclaimed filmmaker Lilly Rivlin, the film is an inspiring look at how social change happens. Booth, a renowned organizer and activist, began her remarkable career at the height of the Civil Rights movement. Looking at Booth’s life, work and personal relationship with respected leaders such as Julian Bond and Senator Elizabeth Warren, the film explores the most pivotal moments in movements that altered our history over the last fifty years. 



Heather Booth: Changing the World blends archival and contemporary footage with interviews with close friends, clients, political colleagues, students and others to understand this one person’s legacy in politics, organizing and empowering each of us to create change.​ We’ll screen the film together the first evening of the conference, on Saturday, July 14, then the next morning Heather will join us in person for a special plenary conversation. Grab some popcorn and have a seat…we look forward to seeing you there!
