        Power of Organizing | Dolores

        This segment explores Robert Kennedy's significant vocal support of farm worker rights. In order to bolster the strength of Kennedy's campaign, Dolores Huerta and the United Farm Workers' voter outreach relied on voter motivation tactics like knocking on doors and registering voters at the door that are still effective today. The segment celebrates the impossible odds of the grape strike, the power of grassroots organizing to change policy, and the success and motivational boost of reaching individuals at the national level with the support of Robert Kennedy.
