Dolores Huerta became involved in a community group supporting farm workers which merged with the AFL-CIO’s Agricultural Workers Organizing Committee (AWOC). Dolores Huerta served as secretary-treasurer of the AWOC. It was during this time that she met Cesar Chavez, and then formed with him the Farm Workers Association, which eventually became the United Farm Workers (UFW).

Dolores Huerta served a key role in the early years of farm worker organizing, though has only recently been given full credit for this. Among other contributions was her work as the coordinator for East Coast efforts in the table grape boycott, 1968-69, which helped to win recognition for the farm workers’ union. It was during this time that she also became connected with the growing feminist movement.

In the 1970s Huerta headed up the farm workers’ union’s political arm and helped lobby for legislative protections.

She has been recognized for her achievements and has received awards such as the Eleanor Roosevelt Award for Human Rights in 1998 and The Presidential Medal of Freedom in 2012.
