Meet the Change with Jenni Wolfson

Last week I performed an extract of RASH at the legendary Nuyorican Poets Cafe in the East Village. I also spoke about my philosophy of change and the importance of networking and community.  The audience was a group of young Jewish activists in their 20's and 30's that were brought together by Pursue, a partnership between AJWS and AVODAH.

If you have ever wondered why I do what I do, then wonder no more.  In preparation for the evening, I was interviewed by someone at Pursue and you can read it here

The evening was described as follows: 

Meet the Change with Jenni Wolfson: What Happens Next is Up to You! (Click here for more info)
She speaks truth to power – on stage, in the field (from Haiti to Rwanda), and from her desk. When it comes to “fighting baddies,” you’ll want her in your corner.

It was a great audience. The folks asked lots of questions, and even the guy behind the bar asked a question!  Then Audrey Sasson who heads up Pursue let a fun networking activity.  I have since heard from almost half the audience which I think is a great sign that we achieved one of the goals of the evening - to encourage networking!  If you want a more objective overview of the evening, read the Pursue blog post.
