Description

Dolores Huerta grew up in a climate charged by political activism. Fueled by her own contact with migrant farm workers—most of them Mexican immigrants with virtually no access to the system of labor laws and conditions under which they lived and worked—Dolores became an outspoken activist and organizer. She founded the United Farm Workers in 1962 with legendary Mexican American labor leader César Chávez, and also worked toward improving the lives of workers, voters, immigrants, and women.
