Alamo Drafthouse at Montecillo is rolling out the red carpet for a true activist icon, Dolores Huerta. A woman that fought for gender, race and class equality since the 1950s.

Unfortunately, we still see this struggle for equality in our everyday lives. Now more than ever we need to look up to and learn from the icons that came before us. Dolores is exactly that, as her life is being showcased in this highly praised documentary

Dolores co-founded the United States’ first-ever farm workers’ union, helped enact the Agricultural Labor Relations Act of 1975, served as the National Chair of the 21st Century Party, and more.

A few lucky people will get to watch the documentary with Dolores as Alamo Drafthouse Montecillo and PBS host two Q&A sessions with Huerta. They already had one showing, the second happens today at 7 p.m.

Even though this event is sold out but you can still watch the documentary on the big screen at the Drafthouse throughout the week. It's amazing to see El Paso bring in the icons that most of our schools don't teach. The next generations need to be educated in how far we have come as a society.
