Venue: George Washington University, Jack Morton Auditorium

Time: 7:00 p.m.

Film: Dolores | 2017 | PBS | Dir. Peter Bratt | 1hr 35 min

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 Cesar Chavez.  Tirelessly leading the fight for racial and labor justice, Huerta evolved into one of the most defiant feminists of the 20th century - and she continues the fight to this day, in her late 80s.

With unprecedented access to this intensely private mother of 11, Peter Bratt's film, Dolores chronicles Huerta’s life from her childhood in Stockton, California, her early years with the headline-making grape boycott launched in 1965, and her role in the feminist movement of the '70s, to her continued work as a fearless activist
