Dolores – Screening & Panel Discussion
Sunday, November 26
2pm | 5pm | 7:30pm
Dolores Huerta is among the most important, yet least known, activists in American history. An equal partner in co-founding the first farm workers unions with Cesar Chavez, her enormous contributions have gone largely unrecognized. Dolores tirelessly led the fight for racial and labor justice alongside Chavez, becoming one of the most defiant feminists of the twentieth century—and she continues the fight to this day, at 87. With intimate and unprecedented access to this intensely private mother to eleven, the film reveals the raw, personal stakes involved in committing one’s life to social change. Directed by Peter Bratt.
Following each screening, join in a panel discussion around current conditions in our community and country. Proceeds from the screenings will benefit those affected by disasters in Mexico and Puerto Rico, and farm workers who were victims of the fires in Napa and Santa Rosa.
