Cat Oriel on Dolores Huerta

“Sí, se puede. Yes, we can.”

Cat Oriel tells the powerful story of the one and only Dolores Huerta, an elementary school teacher who co-founded the United Farm Workers with Cesar Chavez, and became a social justice warrior for over eight decades for the rights of workers, immigrants and women. Dolores has been honored with the Presidential Medal of Freedom and was the first Latina inducted into the National Women’s Hall of Fame. She originated the phrase, “Sí, se puede.” Yes, we can. At 90 years old she’s still organizing, fighting for equal rights for all people. Cat’s personal account of meeting Dolores and carrying on her story will warm your heart.
