Dolores Huerta to speak at "Meet in the Middle"

The amazing Dolores Huerta, who co-founded the United Farm Workers of America with civil rights activist Cesar Chavez, will be speaking at the major event Meet in the Middle in Fresno, CA. It will take place the Saturday after the California Supreme Court rules on the validity of Proposition 8.

Huerta, who is currently nominated as a Voice for Equality, has a long, stellar history of community organizing and recently spoke at the Courage Campaign's Camp Courage in Fresno, CA.

In the following video shot during Camp Courage, she clearly states her support for LGBT equality.

She is also the President of the Dolores Huerta Foundation, a "non-profit organization whose mission is to build active communities working for fair and equal access to health care, housing, education, jobs, civic participation and economic resources for disadvantaged communities with an emphasis on women and youth."

A strong supporter for equality, Huerta has a long track record of fighting for human rights, including 22 arrests from civil disobedience.

A powerful speaker, you don't want to miss this opportunity to hear her live at Meet in the Middle.

Read the Advocate's article on her appearance at the 21st Creating Change Conference this past January.
