One of the most important, yet least known activists of our time, Dolores Huerta is a legendary American labor leader, civil rights activist, and prominent feminist.
Born in 1930 in the mountains of New Mexico, Huerta learned early that women could be a dominant force in the world. She was so moved by witnessing the struggles of migrant families, she committed to a life of activism and an equal partner in founding the American Farm Workers Union with Cesar Chavez. It was Huerta who coined the phrase Si Se Puede! (Yes, We Can!)
Dolores Huerta has received numerous awards including the Eleanor Roosevelt Human Rights Award and the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the highest civilian award in the United States.
Dolores Huerta teaches that “the great social justice changes have happened when people come together to fight for solutions to the problems they confront in their communities…they have power.”
