Come celebrate Dolores Huerta’s 90th Birthday with us by joining the livestream benefit
for the Dolores Huerta Foundation (DHF) to assist communities impacted by COVID-19.
The DHF is providing direct services to communities to relieve the impact of the pandemic
in the regions of California where politically disempowered, low-income, immigrant, and farmworker groups are disproportionately impacted.
Legendary labor leader and civil rights icon Dolores Huerta co-founded the
United Farm Workers with Cesar Chavez and originated the phrase “¡Sí Se Puede!” while fighting on behalf of exploited farmworkers. She received the Presidential Medal of Freedom
in 2012 for her pioneering political activism and community organizing. She continues to advance social justice through her foundation DHF, which focuses on education justice, increasing civic engagement, LGBTQ equality, and eradicating child poverty.
