Before I started my position at the Women’s Centre, I went to see an evening of interactive dialogue with Judy Rebick at the Arusha Centre during the launch of her book – “Transforming Power: From the Personal to the Political.” I enjoyed the talk, bought a copy of the book and although I didn’t know who she was prior to attending this talk, I got her to sign my book.
I have since read and loved Transforming Power and have set rabble.ca to my default homepage. I also discovered the depth of Judy’s feminist and social justice herstory. Rebick is a previous president of the National Action Committee on the Status of Women, is the founder of the alternative news source, Rabble and among many other roles, you can often find her advocating for women’s rights. Judy also keeps a regular blog called Transforming Power.
I’m very excited to announce that in just a few short weeks the Arusha Centre will host Judy Rebick for the launch of her new e-book, “Occupy This” and you have the opportunity to discover her or reconnect with her. Join the evening of interactive dialogue at 7:00pm on Tuesday, May 29, 2012 in the common room of the Old Y Building – #223 – 12th Avenue SW. The event is free. Please register online.
“Occupy This” is a mix of material from Transforming Power and new commentary on the occupy movement. Discussions at this interactive event will focus on the Occupy movement, democracy and capitalism.

Doors open at 6:00pm. Maybe I’ll see you there!
