One of the most important, yet least known activists of our time, Dolores Huerta was an equal partner in founding the first farm workers 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 her late 80s. With unprecedented access to this intensely private mother of 11, Peter Bratt’s film Dolores chronicles Huerta’s life from her childhood in Stockton, California to her early years with the United Farm Workers, from her work with the headline-making grape boycott launched in 1965 to her role in the feminist movement of the ’70s, to her continued work as a fearless activist.
Featuring interviews with Gloria Steinem, Luis Valdez, Angela Davis, her children and more, Dolores is an intimate and inspiring portrait of a passionate champion of the oppressed and an indomitable woman willing to accept the personal sacrifices involved in committing one’s life to social change.
Peter Bratt is an award-winning screenwriter and independent filmmaker whose first feature Follow Me Home, premiered in competition at the 1996 Sundance Film Festival, and won the Best Feature Film Audience Award that same year at the San Francisco International Film Festival. In 2009, he and his brother Benjamin produced La Mission, a feature film shot on location in their hometown of San Francisco. The film, which Peter wrote and directed, premiered at the 2009 Sundance Film Festival and was the opening night film at the 2009 San Francisco International Film Festival, the 2009 New York International Latino Film Festival and the 2009 Outfest Film Festival in Los Angeles. For his work on La Mission, Bratt received the prestigious Norman Lear Writer’s Award and was one of 10 American independent filmmakers selected by Sundance and the President’s Committee on Arts and Humanities to launch Sundance Film Forward, a program that uses film and conversation to excite and introduce a new generation to the power of story. Bratt is a San Francisco Film Commissioner and a longtime consultant for the Friendship House Association of American Indians, a local non-profit serving the Bay Area’s Native population.

We believe that Women’s Rights are Human Rights and Human Rights are Women’s Rights. We must create a society in which women – including Black women, Native women, poor women, immigrant women, disabled women, Muslim women, lesbian queer and trans women – are free and able to care for and nurture their families, however they are formed, in safe and healthy environments free from structural impediments.
Women deserve to live full and healthy lives, free of all forms of violence against our bodies. We believe in accountability and justice in cases of police brutality and ending racial profiling and targeting of communities of color. It is our moral imperative to dismantle the gender and racial inequities within the criminal justice system.
We believe in Reproductive Freedom. We do not accept any federal, state or local rollbacks, cuts or restrictions on our ability to access quality reproductive healthcare services, birth control, HIV/AIDS care and prevention, or medically accurate sexuality education. This means open access to safe, legal, affordable abortion and birth control for all people, regardless of income, location or education.
We firmly declare that LGBTQIA Rights are Human Rights and that it is our obligation to uplift, expand and protect the rights of our gay, lesbian, bi, queer, trans or gender non-conforming brothers, sisters and siblings. We must have the power to control our bodies and be free from gender norms, expectations and stereotypes.
We believe in an economy powered by transparency, accountability, security and equity. All women should be paid equitably, with access to affordable childcare, sick days, healthcare, paid family leave, and healthy work environments. All workers – including domestic and farm workers, undocumented and migrant workers – must have the right to organize and fight for a living minimum wage.
We believe Civil Rights are our birthright, including voting rights, freedom to worship without fear of intimidation or harassment, freedom of speech, and protections for all citizens regardless of race, gender, age or disability. We believe it is time for an all-inclusive Equal Rights Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.
We believe that all women’s issues are issues faced by women with disabilities and Deaf women. As mothers, sisters, daughters, and contributing members of this great nation, we seek to break barriers to access, inclusion, independence, and the full enjoyment of citizenship at home and around the world. We strive to be fully included in and contribute to all aspects of American life, economy, and culture.
Rooted in the promise of America’s call for huddled masses yearning to breathe free, we believe in immigrant and refugee rights regardless of status or country of origin. We believe migration is a human right and that no human being is illegal.
We believe that every person and every community in our nation has the right to clean water, clean air, and access to and enjoyment of public lands. We believe that our environment and our climate must be protected, and that our land and natural resources cannot be exploited for corporate gain or greed – especially at the risk of public safety and health.
INTO ACTION is a groundbreaking social justice festival of art and ideas. An expansive week long pop-up art exhibition, INTO ACTION features a series of large format creative installations, music performances, panel discussions and activist workshops designed to inspire hope, galvanize community and ignite creative engagement. Together, we will issue a call for empathy, accountability, equality, and compassion and manifest a more just society and build momentum for the year to come.
Communities around the United States and worldwide are filled with good people living in fear. Families are being torn apart. Our city, state and federal spending priorities are broken. Institutional bias and racism has eroded trust, access and representation. This has left many feeling angry and powerless.
Despite the circumstances of great oppression we have also seen our neighbors greatest expressions of humanity and solidarity. Artists and activists are showing up with urgency to dismantle the unjust, to speak truth to power and to demand more from our government and from each other. This January, we illuminate our resilience and we take back our hope.
Join Dolores Huerta, Arvin City Mayor, Jose Gurrola, Former City Councilman, Mark Salvaggio and CSUB Professor and Chair of the Political Science Department, Dr. Mark Martinez for a Community Town Hall on the Proposition 13 Commercial Property Tax Loophole and learn more about the statewide Make It Fair Initiative.
Make It Fair Townhall
Thursday, November 9th, 2017
6:00 to 8:00 P.M
911 20th Street Bakersfield, CA
Learn about how we can close California’s commercial property tax loophole and invest more than $68 million into our local schools, libraries, parks and hospitals.
Donald Trump is planning big tax cuts for corporations and will pay for them with massive budget cuts—taking away health care, education, job training and even Meals on Wheels from millions of Americans. Right here in California these same wealthy corporations are pocketing over $9 billion dollars in commercial property tax breaks every year – money that should be going to education, health care and all the other local services Trump wants to take away. California can no longer afford it. Big corporations and the wealthy need to pay their fair share.
The Make It Fair campaign is standing up to Trump and making our state more self-reliant by closing a loophole, leveling the playing field, and updating under-assessed commercial properties based on their actual value. Make It Fair will provide $9 billion of annual revenue that can be used to protect education, health care and the other services we care about from Trump’s cuts while protecting small businesses and reaffirming Prop 13’s protections for homeowners. This common sense correction to our property tax system will generate billions of dollars in desperately needed revenue by updating under-assessed commercial properties based on their actual value and creating a level playing field for all businesses.
