From registering Black Mississippians to vote in the 1960s to advocating for affordable childcare for working parents, Heather Booth has played a role in forging civil rights since her teenage years. She continues to educate community organizers through the Midwest Academy, which she founded. Heather Booth: Changing the World is both a tribute to Booth herself — revealing her to be an inspiration in our current climate and a necessary role model for activists and the average citizen alike — and a guide on how to make a difference.
