California Humanities grieves the passing of Dawn Mabalon, a true champion of the humanities.

Dawn Mabalon participated in a conversation “The Farmworker Movement in California from Chavez Onwards” that California Humanities hosted in 2016 in Fresno.

Noted director and playwright Luis Valdez, founder of El Teatro Campesino led a conversation with Pulitzer Prize-winner Miriam Pawel on how the farmworker movement of the past can help inform the future of agriculture, along with Dawn Mabalon, Associate Professor of History at San Francisco State University and Samuel Orozco, author and National News and Information Director of Radio Bilingüe.

The On the Road with California Humanities series features Pulitzer Prize winners in dialogue with notable thinkers and the community, examining contemporary issues to guide California along the path to a vibrant future.
