(Note that our film is being shown on the 2nd rather than the 3rd Sunday of the month.)


Meet the indomitable Dolores Huerta, who tirelessly led the fight for racial and labor justice alongside Cesar Chavez, becoming one of the most defiant - and unheralded - feminist activists of the 20th century. 

Dec 1, 2017 - Dolores (review)– “powerful portrait of Mexican-American activist. This documentary nails its case for legendary status to be instantly conferred on the Mexican-American labour activist and feminist Dolores Huerta– the woman who invented the slogan ‘Yes We Can’, or, as she coined it, ‘Sí Se Puede’.” - review in The Guardian.

We are indeed lucky to have as our presenter for this film Joanne Carder, AV member extraordinaire, who worked for and with Ms Huerta in Salinas in the early 70s. Known as “la esposa del abogado” (“wife of the lawyer”), Ms. Carder worked to help get needed services for the laboring farm workers there.

Please do not try to register on this website.  Instead, to reserve a seat, please email Mary Goldstein, our hostess, at for the address and to reserve your seat at the film showing (and also to cancel your reservation if your plans have changed.)  


When you come please avoid fragrances in personal care products as well as in laundry products.


Feel free to bring snacks to share (except popcorn - some folks are allergic).
