This October 1&2, the Rosenberg Fund for Children is proud to support Sankofa.org's groundbreaking "Many Rivers to Cross" Social Justice Music and Arts Festival. Taking place in Chattahoochee Hills, GA – just outside of Atlanta – “Many Rivers to Cross” will be the largest multi-generational music and arts festival dedicated to progressive social change.

From indigenous artists using hip hop and digital media to fight colonization, to how the War on Terror is criminalizing entire communities; from the campaign for a $15/hour minimum wage, to the fight against solitary confinement and mass incarceration; and from “Antipsychiatry’s Challenge to the Left,” to revolutionary politics in Venezuela and Quebec, and scores of other topics, Left Forum 2014 was a thrumming beehive of discourse about progressive movements across the U.S. and around the globe.
A confession – I love Thanksgiving. My wife and I, plus our children and grandchildren, celebrate on Cape Cod with my brother and his family. It is such a warm and cozy break from what is often the most frenetic time of the year at the Rosenberg Fund for Children. I often joke – my family will say much too often – that I give thanks on Thanksgiving for surviving until Thanksgiving.
