Dolores – Screening & Panel Discussion

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.

Exuberantly inspiring… makes you want to march and dance.
— David Talbot, San Francisco Chronicle

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.
