Dolores Huerta Speaks at the Hinkley Institute of Politics

Dolores Huerta has worked to improve social and economic conditions for farm workers and to fight discrimination. To further her cause, she created the Agricultural Workers Association (AWA) in 1960 and co-founded what would become the United Farm Workers (UFW). Huerta stepped down from the UFW in 1999, but she continues her efforts to improve the lives of workers, immigrants, and women. 

Dolores Huerta, 2012 recipient of the Presidential Medal of Freedom will speak on the rights of immigrants in the United States at the Hinckley Institute of Politics on March 14 at noon.  This event is free and open to the public.  Lunch will be provided
