In this excerpt from the Independent Lens film Dolores, we see how activist Dolores Huerta, when just starting out as a young community organizer in 1959, quickly made a name for herself as a lobbyist and fierce advocate for Latinos, immigration rights and labor justice. Her dedication helped get key legislation passed in Sacramento, at a time when California legislature was all white males.
