On Sunday, the Rosenberg Fund for Children will sponsor a program titled "Carry It Forward: Celebrate the Children of Resistance" at Town Hall. Among the scheduled participants are Angela Davis, the radical activist and former university professor, and Eve Ensler, an author and actress.

Robert Meeropol, the Rosenbergs' younger son and founder of the fund, is being succeeded as executive director by his daughter Jenn, who is 40.

"To mark the 60th anniversary of the politically motivated execution of my parents," he said, "I am joining with my family and others to reaffirm our commitment to ensure that children of contemporary political prisoners and other progressive activists in the United States do not suffer in isolation, without the support of a broader community."  Get the rest of the story at the link above.
