Dolores Huerta is among the most important, but least known, activists in American history. Huerta tirelessly led the fight for racial and labor justice alongside Cesar Chavez, co-founding the first farm workers unions, yet her enormous contributions have gone largely unrecognized. As one of the most defiant feminists of the twentieth century, the now 87-year-old Huerta remains steadfast in the fight for justice.

Join us for a screening of Peter Bratt’s 2017 documentary «Dolores,» which provides intimate and unprecedented access to Huerta and challenges history’s account of her life and contributions. The discussion will use the film as a framework to explore the personal stakes in committing one’s life to social change and examine pressing issues related to race, gender, immigration and justice.
