Dolores Huerta is among the most important yet least known activists in American history. An equal partner in co-founding the first farm workers unions with César Chávez, her enormous contributions have gone largely unrecognized until recent years. Both Washington and California have set April 10th as Dolores Huerta Day in honor of her work.

Dolores tirelessly led the fight for racial and labor justice alongside Chávez, becoming one of the most defiant feminists of the twentieth century. She continues the fight to this day, at age 90. With intimate and unprecedented access to this intensely private mother to eleven, “Dolores” reveals the raw, personal stakes involved in committing one’s life to social change.
