The exhibition, which features bilingual text (English-Spanish), explores Huerta’s public life as an activist and co-founder of the United Farm Workers Union (UFW), and what led her to become a Latina civil rights icon. In her life as a teacher, mother, communicator, organizer, lobbyist, and contract negotiator, her unparalleled leadership skills helped dramatically improve the lives of farm workers.The exhibition is at the Broome Library Exhibition Hall at CSUCI.

Opening Mar 24: Auschwitz, Not Long Ago. Not Far Away. at the Reagan Library The exhibition brings together more than 700 original objects of great historic and human value; objects which were direct witnesses of the horrors of Auschwitz and the Holocaust. These objects serve as the guiding thread of a rigorous and moving account on the history of the German Nazi camp Auschwitz and its dwellers, both victims and perpetrators. Through this daunting selection of objects from the Auschwitz-Birkenau State Museum as well as more than 20 institutions and museums all over the world, the Auschwitz exhibition portrays the complex reality of the notorious camp, universal symbol of the human tragedies that resulted from Nazi ideology, and the world of victims and perpetrators with a clear goal – to elucidate how such a place could come into being and dig into how its existence has determined our present worldview. Most of these objects have never been shown to an audience in the West Coast before. Sellouts Expected - Ticket Inventory Limited - Plan Your Visit In Advance. Ends Aug 13, 2023.
