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.

No reservations are required. Seating is first come, first serve.

This free screening is made possible by Assemblymember Jose Medina, who represents California's 61st Assembly District, which consists of Riverside, Moreno Valley, Perris and Mead Valley.
