Dolores Huerta co-founded the United Farm Workers along with Cesar Chavez. Her organization and negotiation skills proved instrumental in bringing attention to migrant workers. She officially stepped down from the UFW in 1999, but she wasn’t done yet. She created the Dolores Huerta Foundation in the early aughts, and is still fighting inequality. “You can see we have a long road to travel despite all our achievements since the 70s, a long way to go in terms of our numbers compared with our representation,” she told wire news service Efe.
