Dolores Huerta was one of the main organizers behind the United Farm Workers movement alongside Cesar Chavez, but her name is much less recognized and her legacy is often diminished. To lift her name and her legacy up, CC’s SOMOS and the Chaplains’ Office are collaborating to screen the film Dolores on Monday, April 1, at 5:30pm in the Cornerstone Screening Room. There will be a free Indian food dinner served at 5:30 and the film will start at 6pm. After the film, there will be a panel discussion about the role of family and community in activist movements. Panelists include Prof. Christina Leza, Claudia De La Cruz from the local NAACP, and Mina, who is a local immigrant rights activist. All are welcome to join and this event will be bilingual in Spanish and English.
