Born in April 10, 1930 in New Mexico, Dolores Huerta is a labor and civil rights activist. Her inspirational journey began at a young age where she saw firsthand the unjust treatment of farmworkers, migrants, and people in her community. Dolores, along with Cesar Chavez, helped organize the Delano grape strike in 1965. After the strike, Dolores became a key figure in negotiating better pay and working conditions for farmworkers. To this day, Dolores continues to fight for the rights women, children, immigrants, and Latinx community.

Awesome book

I just bought this book for my 10 month old daughter and I absolutely love it. I love the focus on a darker-complexioned Latinx woman who is a civil rights and labor activist. This is exactly what I want my daughter to be learning about. The Spanish is challenging but doable for someone who took high school Spanish, and is looking to improve their skills, like me. I can’t wait to see more books from y’all. I would love to see the experience of Afro-Latinx folks represented, if not already. Amazing!
