Public Invited to Free Screening of Dolores at Forest Theater on Saturday, March 10

DoloresThe public is invited to the Forest Theater at 1 p.m. Saturday, March 10 for a free screening of Dolores, followed by a community discussion. 

Directed by Peter Bratt, the film chronicles the life of Dolores Huerta, one of 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. Huerta tirelessly led the fight for racial and labor justice alongside Chavez, becoming one of the most defiant feminists of the 20th 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.

The screening is sponsored by the Pacific University Student Multicultural Center, as well as the university’s Center for a Sustainable Society and Activities and Cultural Events Board.
