  1. This may have been the case when Mrs. Huerta first helped grow the UFW. Unfortunately, these days, this quote couldn’t be any further from the truth. For the modern day United Farm Workers union, the hope and reliance is on forced union contracts. Just ask the thousands of us farmworkers who were almost forced into a union contract by the UFW and the state agency that is supposed to protect our rights. We weren’t even given the chance to vote on the contract even though it would have lowered our pay! http://pickjustice.com

  2. The questions you posed to Dolores Huerta opened up a very illuminating and timely dialogue. I appreciated the focus on the female farm workers and on the undocumented. Most inspiring to listen today to her eloquent words about hope in the midst of so much violence! Dolores and the movement are rooted in a very creative soil.

    Thank you, Gracias,
