Legendary Activist Dolores Huerta Celebrates 80th Birthday With Call for "Weaving Movements Together"
The legendary activist Dolores Huerta, co-founder of the United Farm Workers of America with Cesar Chavez, is celebrating her 80th birthday this year. A veteran of the labor, civil rights, immigrant rights, and feminist movements in this country, she was instrumental in passing the Seasonal Agricultural Workers Bill which resulted in the legalization of 1.3 million farm workers. To celebrate her birthday, Huerta is holding a benefit concert in Los Angeles Friday with guests including the guitarist Carlos Santana and Zach de la Rocha of Rage Against the Machine. Titled "Weaving Movements Together", Huerta says she wants to join up immigrant rights, LGBT, feminist, environmental, and labor activists.
