FILM DESCRIPTION: Dolores Huerta is one of the most important, yet least known, activists in American history. She has made enormous contributions, including co-founding the first farm workers unions with Cesar Chavez. This important biopic reveals the raw, personal stakes involved in committing one’s life to social change, as Huerta, a mother to 11 children, tirelessly leads the fight for women’s rights and racial and labor justice. One of five One Earth films highlighting strong women, this Sundance selection won top awards at both the Seattle and Denver film festivals. Teens and young adults encouraged to attend. May contain heavy themes or graphic images.
