Don't miss this rare opportunity to hear Delores Huerta speak at the Santa Rosa Junior College. 

Latina labor rights leader, Dolores Huerta (b. April 10, 1930), is best known for her role in the California farm workers’ movement of the 1960s and ’70s.

She was one of the organizers and leaders of the Delano grape strike. In 1965, Filipino farm laborers from the Agricultural Workers Organizing Committee started a grape strike in Delano for better wages. To amplify their message, they joined forces with the National Farmworkers Association, which Huerta and activist César Chavez co-founded, to create the United Farm Workers (UFW) union.

Dolores Huerta is a powerful speaker and we're fortunate to have here in Sonoma County
