Dolores Clara Fernández Huerta is an American labor leader and activist who was the co-founder of the National Farmworkers Association, which later became the United Farm Workers. Huerta helped organize the Delano grape strike in 1965 and was the lead negotiator in the workers’ contract that was created after the strike. For decades, Ms. Huerta has been a leader in movements for workers' and women's rights, and was an honorary co-chair of the Women's March on Washington, which occurred on January 21, 2017. Her work has been in alliance with the Chicano, Civil Rights, and LGBTQ movements. She has received numerous awards for this advocacy, including the United States Presidential Eleanor Roosevelt Award for Human Rights and the Presidential Medal of Freedom.

Ms. Huerta is now president of the Dolores Huerta Foundation, a grassroots organization, that "creates leadership opportunities for community organizing, leadership development, civic engagement, and policy advocacy in the following priority areas: health & environment, education & youth development, and economic development."

Spanish and ASL translation will be provided.

We look forward to seeing you there!
