The Rosenberg Fund for Children (RFC) is excited to announce two 
upcoming online events which will focus on Ethel Rosenberg's life and 
the campaign to exonerate her. With the June 8th release of bestselling 
author Anne Sebba's new biography /Ethel Rosenberg: An American Tragedy 
<https://www.rfc.org/civicrm/mailing/url?u=6906&qid=2094423>/, Ethel's 
history is reemerging in public consciousness, and 70 years following 
her conviction it's clear that justice for Ethel matters as much as 
ever. We hope you'll join us (virtually) for both of these upcoming 

Jenn Meeropol on “Exonerating Ethel” for CCB Speaker Series

*Sunday, June 6th at 11 AM EDT, Online*

In 1951, at the height of the McCarthy era, Ethel Rosenberg was 
convicted of “conspiracy to commit espionage” alongside her husband 
Julius in a trial that would come to symbolize “Red Scare” hysteria and 
the U.S.’s willingness to commit injustices in the name of national 
security. 70 years later, RFC Exec. Director Jenn Meeropol (and Ethel's 
granddaughter) will discuss why justice for Ethel still matters, what 
was learned during the 2016 campaign to exonerate Ethel, and the 
exciting possibility of a relaunch in the months to come. This online 
event is hosted by the Community Church of Boston 
<https://www.rfc.org/civicrm/mailing/url?u=6907&qid=2094423>. It is free 
and open to the public.

Conversation with Anne Sebba, author of "Ethel Rosenberg: An American 

*Tuesday, June 29th at 7 PM EDT, Online*

Seventy years after her trial, this is the first time Ethel Rosenberg’s 
story has been told with the full use of the dramatic and tragic prison 
letters she exchanged with her husband, her lawyer and her 
psychotherapist over a three-year period, two of them in solitary 
confinement. Hers is the resonant story of what happens when a 
government motivated by fear tramples on the rights of its citizens.

This online event will include a conversation with /New York Times/ 
bestselling author Anne Sebba joined by RFC Founder (and Ethel's 
youngest son) Robert Meeropol. The event is hosted by Odyssey Bookshop 
<https://www.rfc.org/civicrm/mailing/url?u=6910&qid=2094423> and is free 
and open to the public via Crowdcast. Please register in advance.
