The oldest daughter of Philip Berrigan and Elizabeth McAlister, Frida was raised in the Jonah House community in Baltimore. As members of various “Plowshares” nonviolent civil disobedience actions, her parents were incarcerated repeatedly, serving eleven years between them over the course of their twenty-nine-year marriage.

“Nuclear weapons ruined my life,” Frida wrote, “and I wouldn’t have it any other way.”

Frida’s own journey of advocacy and urban farming encapsulates the spirit of service and community activism with which she was raised. In her book, “It Runs In The Family: On Being Raised by Radicals and Growing into Rebellious Motherhood,” she offers unique insights into living a life rooted in conviction and compassionate action.

This event promises not only an inspiring talk but also a chance to mingle and reflect over coffee, dessert, and drinks at our reception following the presentation.
