Keynote TBD

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.

The Keynote Speaker is Pablo Godoy, National Representative, UFCW. There will be a panel discussion/Q&A after Dolores with Pablo Godoy, Chaumtoli Huq (Director, Workers Voices), Kari Michaels (EVP, BCGEU), and Hessed Torres (Migrante BC).

Gala Reception 7:50-9pm

Gala screening with reception $10 (drink ticket + appetizers)

Combine with Workers Voices at 3:30 for $12
