In 1962 labor activist Dolores Huerta joined César Chavez to found the National Farm Workers Association, one step of many in the ongoing battle for workers rights. Though she received the Presidential Medal of Freedom in 2012, many of Huerta’s contributions to social justice remain underrecognized. A devoted feminist, labor leader and advocate for Mexican-Americans, Huerta devoted her life to empowering the disempowered and spearheading social change. Drawing on a rich archive and selection of thoughtful interviews, this new film sheds light on the inspiring work of a historic figure.
