We are pleased to present Civil Rights Activist Dolores Huerta at the Henry J. Mello Center for the Performing Arts on Saturday, August 12 at 4:00pm in Watsonville. Huerta has spent decades championing the rights of farmworkers, women and the LGBTQ+ community. She’ll be joined on stage by local activists Mireya Gómez-Contreras, Co-Leader of Esperanza Community Farms, and Ann López, PhD, Executive Director of the Center for Farmworker Families, as they discuss cultivating sustainable communities through organic farming and economic justice. For tickets and more information: https://bit.ly/46oMP1R

This event is being sponsored by Rise Together Fund at Community Foundation Santa Cruz County, Land Trust of Santa Cruz County, and Santa Cruz County Bank.

Doors will open at 3pm with appetizers, mingling with nonprofits and vendors, and will be followed by a dance performance by the Watsonville-based children’s group Estrellas de Esperanza, before our presenters take the stage. Simultaneous Spanish interpretation will be available upon request. The Mello Center is wheelchair accessible.
