Stories. Conversation. Resilience.
Women throughout history have worked to improve the lives of families and communities through personal resilience, teamwork and service to others. In this most difficult year, we celebrate Women’s History Month by featuring stories of female resilience, starting with the premiere of a new film with renowned activist Dolores Huerta, who will be joining us in person for our upcoming benefit.
Our annual event is going virtual this year, kicking off our Women’s History Month fundraising campaign with an online event hosted by the smart and hilarious Kate Rigg (back from last year’s event by popular demand) and featuring an interactive conversation with Ms. Huerta about her own resilience as a social justice activist for over 50 years.

2021 Look What SHE Did! Honoree
Dolores Huerta is a civil rights activist and community organizer. She has worked for labor rights and social justice for over 50 years. In 1962, she and Cesar Chavez founded the United Farm Workers union. She served as Vice President and played a critical role in many of the union’s accomplishments for four decades. In 2002, she received the Puffin/Nation $100,000 prize for Creative Citizenship which she used to establish the Dolores Huerta Foundation (DHF). DHF is connecting groundbreaking community-based organizing to state and national movements to register and educate voters; advocate for education reform; bring about infrastructure improvements in low-income communities; advocate for greater equality for the LGBT community; and create strong leadership development. She has received numerous awards: among them The Eleanor Roosevelt Humans Rights Award from President Clinton in 1998. In 2012 President Obama bestowed Dolores with The Presidential Medal of Freedom, the highest civilian honor in the United States.
