ITT EXTRA: What Would Dolores Huerta Do?

Maria and Julio give a little history lesson about the complicated legacy of César Chávez. From the conservative trope that Chávez was anti-immigration to Maria meeting Chávez for the first time at a Halloween parade, they talk about the real history of this national figure. They also highlight the activism of Chávez's badass comrade, Dolores Huerta, who is often written out of history, yet is still organizing for social justice at age 87. Reinforcing what we can learn from our history, they connect the farmworker's movement, with the fight for DACA and the youth movement against gun violence.
