Chick Week Celebration!

[Get Active] Sorry about the header there, just trying to get some attention. Any who, the U. is hosting a mess of fine discussions, movies and events in celebration of women's week. A few events have already taken place, but you can still swing by the Union Ballroom tomorrow, Wed. at 4 pm to hear keynote speaker Dolores Huerta. Huerta is a pillar in America's Chicana labor movement, and is co-founder and vice president of United Farm Workers, where she has worked for over 30 years advocating for the oft-marginalized women, men and children who toil in our country's produce fields.

While the event is geared towards encouraging women into shaping policy and politics by taking a greater role in it, with so much experience in the field of labor and social justice the message delivered is bound to be enlightening to all. (Eric S. Peterson)
