Women across Chicago are coming together and organizing their communities to achieve social change. Join Chicago Foundation for Women for a conversation with local leaders on what it takes to unite diverse communities and build strong, women-led coalitions.
Attendees will also have the chance to win two tickets to a screening of DOLORES.
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. Directed by Peter Bratt.
