I have a big birthday coming up. Three-quarters of a century big. I wish I could celebrate with friends and family, dancing into the wee hours (ok, so maybe dancing until 11 pm, if I'm lucky). But these are extraordinary times, in so many ways. Instead, I invite you to celebrate with me by supporting the Rosenberg Fund for Children.

Across the U.S., activists are being attacked because they're working to combat racism, protest police brutality, preserve civil liberties, safeguard the environment, wage peace, and organize on behalf of immigrants, workers, prisoners, the LGBTQ community, and others whose lives are under threat. All too often, these activists are parents whose children end up in the crosshairs of repression.

The RFC is the only U.S. based non-profit foundation whose sole purpose is supporting the educational and emotional needs of these kids. In 2020 they celebrated their 30th anniversary and awarded $400,000 in grants for hundreds of kids.

The RFC is close to my heart. Many of you know that this amazing organization was started by my husband, Robby, to honor his parents, Ethel and Julius Rosenberg, and that I served on the Board for over two decades.. Together, we can help kids whose parents have been targeted because of their activism attend summer camp or hire a tutor or receive therapy or attend a dance program or participate in other activities that allow them to have fun, process their experiences, and heal.

Please celebrate with me by making a donation (of any amount) to support activist families.
