1. Happy Birthday, Dolores Huerta (April 10, 1930 - present)!

    Huerta is a labor & civil rights leader who co-founded the United Farm Workers Union in 1972, and directed the groundbreaking, five-year National grape boycott that won the first-ever contract for a grape grower.

    She has been a tireless advocate for women’s rights, organizing against the Welfare Reform Act and California’s Prop 209.

    She is also a 101 Changemaker: 101 Changemakers: Rebels and Radical Who Changed US History
