Dolores Huerta is a labor activist who has gone to jail many times in the interest of organizing farm workers.

I just heard an interview with her on Latino USA – an NPR feature. She is nearing 80 and is full of spirit. Please look to the podcast of Latino USA Episode 907 from August 20,2010.

I used to wear the United Farm Workers Union Gallo Boycott buttons with pride.
