Matron Saint of Farm Workers
and Women Activists

Artist: Margi Lutrrell

Dolores Huerta
Born: April 10, 1930
Occupation: Labor leader, activist

A 1950’s American working-class wife and mother of eleven children helped to establish a farm workers
union, that later developed into platform for feminism and gender equality.

At 88, Dolores still has a yes we can attitude!
Si se puede!

Delores is a peaceful woman with a megaphone, always in action:
leading/ protesting/ negotiating/ working/ marching/ advocating/ educating/ caring

My depiction of her also includes grapes, a symbol of the 1965 Delano Grape strike and boycott protesting workers poor pay and working conditions.
