Dolores Screening at Clinton St. Theater
Join People's Food Co-op,, the Clinton Street Theater, and PCUN (Oregon's Farmworker Union) for a screening of Dolores, a documentary chronicling the life and impact of farmworker rights advocate Dolores Huerta, in celebration of Farmworker Awareness Week. Raising 11 children while wrestling with gender bias, union defeat and victory, and nearly dying after a San Francisco Police beating, Dolores Huerta bucked 1950s gender conventions to co-found the country's first farmworkers union. We'll be joined by farmworkers from PCUN for a panel discussion after the film. $5-15 suggested donation, though no one will be turned away for lack of funds. Proceeds will be donated to PCUN to support their critical work. Buy tickets online or pay at the door.
