        Legacy | Dolores

        This segment begins with Dolores Huerta’s resignation speech, in Spanish, from the United Farm Workers, delivered at the UFW convention in 2002, and describes the difficulty she had stepping away. Since then, she received the Puffin/Nation award and founded the Dolores Huerta Foundation, which her daughter Camila Chavez directs, to continue the work of organizing young Latina women to fight for their rights. President Barack Obama gives her credit for coining the phrase, “Si se puede,” “Yes, we can.”
