Students learn about the 1960's Grape Boycott and Huerta's work to improve the terrible working conditions of Farm Workers. The role that Huerta played in establishing the United Farm Workers Union was pivotal in affecting change, and as a woman in the 1960’s Huerta’s impact was often overlooked. Help your students to explore ways in which Dolores Huerta is honored today through the music of Alice Bag, the poetry of Nikki Darling, and the artwork of Shepard Fairey. As a culminating activity, this lesson ends with a super cool art project.

Excellent presentation and resources! I also enjoyed how the presentation was interactive! Wonderful ideas on how to celebrate and honor Dolores Huerta.
*The presenter offered a first hand look into the life history and legacy of Dolores Huerta and I made her my hero.

Our presenter was concise, clear, quick, and knowledgeable. The chat box where we could share links was super helpful. With a little tweaking I can turn this into a Spanish culture lesson for both levels 1 and 2. Thank you.
