“Dolores” is a documentary about Dolores Huerta, labor organizer, political activist, and co-founder of the United Farm Workers union.
This film traces the history and legacy of Huerta, a dedicated and influential advocate of women’s and workers’ rights.
Join us for a talk-back after the film, led by NCC students and faculty.
“Dolores” is the first in series of film screenings about Women and Politics, and is part of a year-long celebration at Northampton Community College of 100 years of women’s suffrage.
This screening is free and open to the public, and is co-sponsored by the NCC Humanities Endowment and by PBS.

NCC PRIORITY DEADLINE EXTENDED TO MAY 15!
Deadlines, deadlines, deadlines…if you are a student you know all about them. This is an important one. May 15 is the Northampton Community College priority deadline to submit your financial aid application (FAFSA) for the coming 2020-21 academic year.
The FAFSA for 2020-21 became available October 1, 2019, and requires students and parents to provide tax information from 2018 (two tax years ago). Students and parents are advised to use the electronic process within the FAFSA (called the IRS Data Retrieval) to electronically transfer their 2018 tax information to their FAFSA application, whenever possible. If the IRS Data Retrieval is used the school rarely needs to collect additional documentation from the applicant since the accuracy of the information is already assured through the transfer. If you are unable to use the IRS Data Retrieval (situations like fraud alerts, recent marital status changes and other unique situations can cause the Retrieval to be unavailable for some filers), you can enter the information yourself but may need to provide additional documents to the school after your FAFSA is processed.
As long as you provide all required documentation, filing by the NCC priority deadline assures that your application will be processed and you will receive notice of your eligibility before the tuition due date for the Fall 2020 semester. If you miss the NCC priority deadline of March 31, submit your FAFSA as soon as possible. In addition to the NCC Priority FAFSA deadline of March 31, the state grant program administered by PHEAA requires that first time community college students submit their FAFSA no later than August 1 and continuing community college students must file by May 1 to be considered for state grant assistance.
