Dolores Huerta is among the most important, but least well known, activists in American history. An equal partner in co-founding the first farm workers union with Cesar Chavez, her enormous contributions have largely gone unrecognized. Dolores tirelessly lead the fight for racial and labor justice alongside Chavez, becoming one of the most defiant feminists of the twentieth century. She continues the fight to this day at age 87. With intimate and unprecedented access to this powerful mother of eleven, the film reveal the raw, emotional stakes in committing one’s life to social change.
The film will be introduced by Cate Poe who spent her career building organizations in low-to-moderate income communities and workplaces. In the mid-nineties she ran the AFL-CIO's campaign to pressure five NJ-based supermarket chains to support "5 Cents for Fairness" for strawberry workers, then joined Spanish speaking organizers in Watsonville, California under the supervision of Dolores Huerta and other UFW leaders.
