Local civil rights activist and icon Dolores Huerta celebrated her 90th birthday last month but this weekend she's ready to celebrate with you and its all to benefit a couple of good causes.

The ¡SI SE PUEDE birthday celebration live stream event is set to happen Saturday from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m.

This remote-attendance party will feature a roster of special guests, including actors Jane Fonda and Tim Robbins for a night of entertainment and activism.

The goal is to raise funds for the Dolores Huerta Foundation's frontline efforts to mitigate the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic and to help with the effort to make sure everyone is counted in the 2020 census.

You can register for the livestream for free on the Dolores Huerta Foundation Facebook page.
