Dolores Huerta: A Born Again Feminist


(Original Air Date: March 21, 2018) — Dolores Huerta is an American Labor leader, civil rights activist, feminist and Mother. She is also the founder of the Agricultural Workers Association, and co-founder of the United Farm Workers union. Huerta has spent her life working to fight discrimination and to improve conditions for farm-workers. In 2012, Huerta received the Presidential Medal of Freedom.  

Earlier this year on March 14th, Dolores Huerta was in Utah for the screening of a documentary about her life. While she was here, she spoke at the Hinckley Institute of Politics on the campus of University of Utah — and her discussion covered everything from immigration in the Trump Era, to the state of Labor Unions today, to working conditions for migrant laborers, to income inequality and beyond. Her talk was recorded on March 14th, 2018.
