              The woman who co-founded the National Farmworkers Association with Cesar Chavez in 1962, which later became the United Farm Workers, is being recognized with a Presidential Medal of Freedom. The White House called Huerta just days after her 82nd birthday. The civil rights activist and her 11 children threw a party at La Plaza de Cultura y Artes downtown Los Angeles. About 900 people attended, including Oscar Nominated Actor Edward James Olmos and “Zoot Suit” playwright/filmmaker Luis Valdez. Huerta’s grassroots connection with farm workers and her activism for Latinas, adult education, and voter registration resonate with many Hispanic in L.A. Her organizing style has become the blueprint that community activists and attorneys build on to unite a wide range of blue-collar workers, including janitors, car wash employees, and the industry that’s nearest to our hearts—The Loncheros. Huerta’s social contributions are central to the Mexican immigrant experience in Los Angeles and an important part of the history section of the film-in-production, Masa Revolution. –Dolores Huerta will travel to The White House to receive her award later this spring.
