Dolores Huerta to speak at annual celebration

Dolores Huerta
​​An annual campus tradition hosted by the Office of Institutional Diversity and Equity, the Dolores Huerta Celebration aims to highlight contemporary issues that have an impact on the Latinx community. This year, the celebration's namesake, Dolores Huerta, will guest speak at the event. All members of the university community are welcome to RSVP for the virtual event, set for Oct. 7.

One of the most important, yet least known activists of our time, Dolores Huerta, was an equal partner in founding the first farmworkers union with César Chávez. Tirelessly leading the fight for racial and labor justice, Huerta evolved into one of the most defiant feminists of the 20th century — and she continues the fight to this day. In addition to cultivating collaborative opportunities to serve as allies for social justice, the program commemorates Latinx Heritage Month and highlights DePaul's resources.

Prior to the celebration, campus community members are welcome to attend a virtual screening of “Dolores," on Oct. 6.  Registered guests will receive a Vimeo link to the film on the morning of Oct. 6.
