Dolores Film Screening & Panel

Kentuckians For The Commonwealth, partnering with allies in northern Kentucky, is hosting a screening of Dolores at the Kenton County Public Library in Covington on September 22nd. The film focuses on the life and successes of Dolores Huerta, who as an immigrant and labor activist helped found the United Farm Workers union with Caesar Chavez.

Following the screening there will be a panel moderated by NKU Professor Irene Encarnacion, and cosnsisting of local Latinx activists Sister Juna Mendez, Heyra Avila, and Roberto Amazendes. They'll talk about what they took away from the movie, Dolores Huerta's work, and lessons that can be used today.

KFTC will be doing voter registration, and providing space for allies to leave information about the work they are doing.
