The documentary film "Dolores" chronicles Dolores Huerta’s life from her childhood in Stockton, California to co-founding the United Farm Workers with César Chávez and her lifetime of tireless activism.
One of the most important, yet least known activists of our time, Dolores Huerta was an equal partner in founding the first farm workers union with César Chávez. "Dolores" documents Huerta’s life from her childhood in Stockton, California to her early years with the United Farm Workers, from her work with the headline-making grape boycott launched in 1965 to her role in the feminist movement of the ’70s, to her continued work as a fearless activist.
This film screening will be followed by a discussion led by Huerta's long-time friend Wendy Greenfield.
