Dolores Huerta

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!)
