MACOMB, IL – Casa Latina and the Women's Center at Western Illinois University will host a screening of the Dolores Huerta film, "Dolores" from 5:30-8 p.m. Wednesday, March 28 at the Multicultural Center.

The screening is being held as part of the WIU celebration of Women's History Month. This year's theme is "Women Undefined."

Huerta is an activist and an equal partner in co-founding the first farm workers unions with Cesar Chavez. She tirelessly led the fight for racial and labor justice alongside Chavez, becoming one of the most defiant feminists of the 20th century, and she continues the fight at age 87.

The screening and discussion are open free to the public.
