Civil rights activist Dolores Huerta speaks on March 8

Join us for a special guest appearance by Dolores Huerta, the woman who cofounded the National Farm Workers Association with César Chávez in the early 1960s and who received the Presidential Medal of Freedom from President Obama in 2012.

Huerta will give a presentation on Sunday, March 8, from 7 to 8:30 p.m. in Bauman Auditorium. Seating is on a first-come, first-served basis, and the doors open at 6:30 p.m.

Huerta has worked for labor rights and social justice for more than 50 years. This lecture will provide an inside look at the farm worker movement and its historical ramifications for today. She will speak to what the movement was all about and her role in it, and address what activism is and how it can effect change.
