Dolores Huerta Stands Strong · The Woman Who Demanded Justice
By Marlene Targ Brill

Dolores Huerta Stands Strong follows Huerta’s life from the mining communities of the Southwest where her father toiled, to the vineyards and fields of California, to the present day. As she advocated for farmworkers, Mexican American immigrants, women, and LGBTQ population rights, Dolores earned the nation’s highest honors and found her voice.

Dolores Huerta Stands Strong is a moving herstory that exudes passion and ignites the reader’s inner warrior. Brill has crafted an enticing and empowering picture of courage, belief, struggles, commitment, and justice that future generations of all colors and genders can use as a model for future battles. ‘Si, se puede,’ or ‘Yes, we can,’ is rightfully attributed to a courageous Latina whose message has been echoed and propelled all over the world.”
