April 10 designated as Dolores Huerta Day


Governor Jerry Brown signed into law Wednesday a bill designating April 10 as Dolores Huerta Day, in honor of the civil rights activist. 

Dolores Huerta Day is a “designated day to recognize Dolores’ lifelong work as a civil rights activist and community organizer, her role as the co-founder and Vice President of the United Farm Workers Union, and her current work as Founder and President of the Dolores Huerta Foundation,” according to the Dolores Huerta Foundation. 

Dolores Huerta Day is not a state holiday, but is designed to “encourage schools to teach their students about Dolores Huerta and her life,” the foundation said.
