Past, Present & Future Voices Empowering Community with Dolores Huerta
Learn about someone who is still making history and paving the way for the future! Founder/President of Dolores Huerta Foundation, Civil Rights Activist, and Community Organizer, ICON, joins us HERE in Sun Valley, Idaho
About the Event
Legendary organizer and activist Dolores Huerta grew up in an integrated community in Stockton, Calif. As a schoolteacher, she noticed that her students, many of whom were children of farm workers, were living in poverty. It was this realization that led Huerta to quit teaching and organize a path to create change.
In the 1950s, Huerta met Cesar Chavez. Together, they organized agricultural workers to demand better working conditions and higher wages and co-founded the United Farm Workers in 1962. More than 60 years into her activism, she continues to speak out as President of the Dolores Huerta Foundation.
Dolores brings to bear many influential accolades and her presence in this community will further enhance the cultural work that The Crisis Hotline together with our community partners, engage in with a focus on building strong vibrant, and diverse communities
