Want to make a difference in the world but don’t know how to start?
While all transformation happens by taking a small step, very few people have walked the miles and impacted lives as deeply and broadly as civil rights icon and Presidential Medal of Freedom recipient, Delores Huerta. She was the inspiration for Obama’s ‘Yes we can’ campaign battle cry and is known for her tireless and fierce commitment to improving deplorable working conditions for California farmworkers in the 1960s. She worked side by side with Cesar Chavez and organized a 17 million person grape strike which resulted in the first-ever farmworker contract.
At 90 years old, Dolores is still fighting. Through The Dolores Huerta Foundation, she continues to build a better quality of life for agricultural communities and beyond.
Come stand with us in the shadow of greatness to meet and be inspired by this national hero.
