Film Screening: Dolores

  • The Environmental Cooperative at the Vassar Barns 50 Vassar Farm Lane Poughkeepsie, NY, 12603 United States (map)

Join us for a screening of Dolores, a documentary film about Dolores Huerta, one of 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.  The film is in English with Spanish subtitles. The screening will be followed by a community discussion. Sponsors include Poughkeepsie Farm Project, Rural and Migrant Ministries, NYCLU, Nobody Leaves Mid-Hudson, Black Lives Matter Hudson Valley, Worker Justice Center of New York, Hispanic Federation, and Dutchess Outreach.
