Legendary activist, organizer, and Feminist Majority Foundation board member Dolores Huerta is turning 90! Join the Dolores Huerta Foundation and special guests to celebrate her life and legacy.

From The Dolores Huerta Foundation via Facebook:

¡SI SE PUEDE AT 90!

April 10th, 2020 marks Dolores Huerta’s 90th Birthday. As president, she has led Dolores Huerta Foundation (DHF) to successfully organize politically disempowered, low income, immigrant, and farmworker communities for over 15 years, affecting policy and forcing equitable structural transformation. DHF is uniquely positioned to address the needs of the most vulnerable families in this COVID-19 crisis.

DHF staff have been working from home to advocate for educational and economic resources such as food security and access to technology for low income students. DHF is advocating with a statewide coalition, End Childhood Poverty CA, for income support for impoverished families, regardless of immigration status, to make sure those most in need are covered by state and federal emergency funds. DHF continues outreach to hard-to-count communities to secure essential funding for public services for the next 10 years by getting everyone counted in the 2020 Census.

Dolores is raising funds to help communities who are in dire need and would be honored if you could celebrate her birthday with her and be a champion for these underserved populations.

Please join us on Saturday, May 30 for a
90th Birthday Celebration and
Live-Stream Benefit!

This remote-attendance party will feature a roster of special guests, including Jane Fonda, Cristela Alonzo and Tim Robbins, for a night of entertainment and activism. The goal is to raise funds for the Dolores Huerta Foundation’s (DHF) frontline efforts to mitigate the impact of the pandemic in the regions of California where politically disempowered, low income, immigrant, and farmworker communities are being severely impacted in these difficult times.
