The story of Dolores Huerta, the mother of the Chicano Farmworkers Union movement, will fill the big screen in Lincoln City this Saturday, March 23, as part of the Central Oregon Coast NOW Women’s History Project.
“She is often overshadowed by her co-founder Cesar Chavez,” said NOW member Franki Trujillo-Dalbey. “She coined the phrase Si Se Puede (yes we can) and deserves praise for being a strong female civil rights leader and role model for all Chicanas during the Delano grape boycott of 1965.”
“Everyone should know about the many contributions she’s made as one of the most effective and well-loved Latina leaders of our time,” Trujillo-Dalby added.
Saturday’s screening of “Dolores” will start at 11 am at the Bijou Theatre, 1624 NE Hwy. 101, Lincoln City.
