Fraga. A 3:45 p.m. reception will precede the 4:30 p.m. event on Tuesday, February 13th in the McKenna Hall Auditorium.
Huerta, along with César Chávez, co-founded the United Farm Workers (UFW) and is one of the most influential labor activist of the 20th century. She is president of the Dolores Huerta Foundation whose mission is to create networks of healthy, organized communities pursuing social justice through systemic and structural transformation.
The event is free and open to the public. Off campus visitors are encouraged to park in the Compton Lot by the Compton Family Ice Arena (off of Angela Blvd & Leahy Drive). Notre Dame provides free shuttle service from the Compton Lot to McKenna Hall every 15 minutes until 7 p.m.
