ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — Social activist Dolores Huerta is slated to visit Albuquerque and lead a march in honor of her United Farm Worker union co-founder Cesar Chavez.
The 87-year-old Huerta is scheduled Saturday to speak at the 25th annual César Chávez Day Fiesta just days after PBS aired a documentary from Independent Lens based on her life.
ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — Dolores Huerta formed the first farmworkers union with Cesar Chavez, stood next to Sen. Robert Kennedy minutes before he was assassinated, inspired Barack Obama's 2008 "Yes We Can" presidential campaign slogan with her "Si, Se Puede" rallying cry and has continued her social activism as she approaches her 90th birthday.
