New Novel Explores Impact on Children of Parents' Activism

How do parents’ political or activist choices impact how their children see the world? Does being the child of someone who faced repression for their political choices make you more or less likely to make similar choices yourself? Can you be angry at a parent for the impact of their actions while also proud of their commitment? In her blog here, RFC Executive Director Jenn Meeropol explores how Kinship of Clover, a new novel by her mother - author and RFC Advisory Board member Ellen Meeropol - addresses these questions (which are intertwined with the RFC 's work as well).
