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. Directed by Peter Bratt.

SPECIAL THANKS TO THE Cleveland Colectivo for granting NWFN funds to help them offer this exciting opportunity to the community! All funds raised at this event will support IRTF and their campaigns for farmworker, women's and labor solidarity with the Coalition of Immokalee Workers and the National Farmworker Ministry. 

See 'Dolores' on the big screen for free 7:30pm March 8th. Please RSVP and consider a donation at https://www.eventbrite.com/e/international-womens-day-dolores-film-screening-and-farmworker-labor-panel-tickets-42959884170?aff=efbevent
