Dolores Huerta to speak at Memorial Chapel Sept. 19

Activist and esteemed labor organizer Dolores Huerta will present the documentary about her life, Dolores, plus answer questions during a Q&A session Wednesday, Sept. 19, at the University of Redlands Memorial Chapel.

Huerta, 87, is a Medal of Freedom recipient who co-founded the first farm worker unions with Cesar Chavez. Dolores looks at Huerta’s life, how she transformed from a labor organizer to a feminist labor organizer, how she dealt with sexist double standards, and how her work affected her 11 children.

Huerta is speaking as part of the Redlands Forum. Tickets are free, and available at Eventbrite.
