YWCA Boulder County will host three events for Stand Against Racism*: Coffee Talk for Justice with Native American Rights Fund; Pizza, Pie & Postcards; and Dolores: Film Screening & Discussion.
What: Dolores: Film Screening & Discussion
When: Sunday, May 6th at 6:30 pm
Where: Nomad Theater / 1410 Quince Ave, Boulder, CO 80304
Description: YWCA Boulder County will be showing Dolores at the Nomad Theater and facilitating a panel and group discussion after the film. We’d be pleased to see you there!
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. For more information on the film, visit: https://www.doloresthemovie.com/
Cost: This event is free, though we will be accepting donations. While there is no cost, space is limited. To reserve a spot, visit https://www.ywcaboulder.org/class/dolores-film-screening-discussion
Accessibility: Information coming soon!
