Dolores is a teacher, a mother and a friend. She wants to know why her students are too hungry to listen and why they don't have shoes to wear to school. Dolores is a warrior, an organizer and a peacemaker. When she finds out that the farm workers in her community are poorly paid and their working are under dangerous conditions, she stands up for their rights. This is the story of Dolores Huerta and the extraordinary battle she waged to ensure fair and safe work places for migrant workers.
