Details

Advocate Dolores Huerta, along with activist Cesar Chavez, founded the labor organization that would later become the United Farm Workers of America (UFW). Huerta led strikes, organized demonstrations, and negotiated contracts on behalf of the UFW. In 1973, the UFW's nationwide consumer boycott of California grapes, lettuce, and Gallo wines won a landmark collective bargaining agreement for the group. Even though she is now a great-grandmother, Huerta continues her work on behalf of immigrants and women. This upbeat profile highlights the activist's heritage, and how it impacted her achievements. Dolores Huerta points the way to further study with source notes, a bibliography, chronology, Web sites, and other features.
