Dolores Huerta, founder of the United Farm Workers of America, has fought for the feminist, labor, civil, and immigrant movements in the United States, making her the perfect role model for young Latinos. This weekend, she’s celebrating her 80th birthday and you can bet she’s ready to rock out with the finest.

This Friday night, you’re invited to Huerta’s birthday celebration at the Greek Theatre in Los Angeles, which will feature performances by Carlos Santana, Zack de la Rocha of Rage Against the Machine, Lila Downs, and Pete Escovedo. “Weaving Movements Together” will also be hosted by Martin Sheen, Benjamin Bratt, and other surprise guests. Not only will the benefit concert raise awareness on social issues affecting Latinos, but this is a rare opporunity to party with major Hollywood and music celebs. You can purchase your passes today for Huerta’s birthday bash at Ticketmaster.com.

Speaking of Bratt, this looks like the perfect excuse to study Santana before playing him in an upcoming biopic!
