Sausalito Library Speaker Series
6/12/2014 7:00 PM - 8:30 PM
Join us for a conversation with Jane Sloane, Vice President of Programs with Global Fund for Women and a Sausalito resident, as she talks about her recent book, Citizen Jane, a book that takes us on a journey to the heart of building movements for women's human rights.
In her book, Jane shares the advice that Nelson Mandela gave her when she spent a day with him, and the path that opened to her. She captures the rise of a global citizenship movement and writes about the people involved, the breakthrough ideas and the activists holding ground that have contributed to this momentum for social change. Jane includes stories of women’s human rights defenders and other individuals and organizations that have maintained the momentum for social change -- and the kinds of programs and successes that have been possible as a result. Just as important as her professional life is Jane’s spiritual journey and her connection to poetry, nature, literature and music, including her experience of living in Sausalito, as a community of artists and those attuned to the natural world.
