Dolores Clara Fernández Huerta (born April 10, 1930) is an American labor leader and civil rights activist who was the co-founder of the National Farmworkers Association, which later became the United Farm Workers (UFW). Huerta helped organize the Delano grape strike in 1965 and was the lead negotiator in the workers’ contract that was created after the strike.
Huerta has received numerous awards for her community service and advocacy for workers’, immigrants’, and women’s rights, including the Eugene V. Debs Foundation Outstanding American Award, the United States Presidential Eleanor Roosevelt Award for Human Rights and the Presidential Medal of Freedom. She was inducted in the National Women’s Hall of Fame in 1993, the first Latina inductee.
Huerta is the originator of the phrase, “Sí se puede”. As a role model to many in the community, Huerta is the subject of many corridos and murals.
She continues to fight in the struggles of social justice. At 87 years old you will still find her in the trenches marching, advocating, and using her voice to hold our elected leaders accountable for their actions. She is an inspiration.
