Going to start writing to people I admire. Starting with Sr. Stan Kennedy, Dolores Huerta, Congressman John Lewis, & author Bryan Stevenson
And that's how Susan Sarandon ended up making herself the story by coming at Dolores Huerta - over the rules!

And I would absolutely endorse Dolores Huerta for that position, just so I can see her say "LATINA! POWER!" everyday.

How To Read The Bible, Friday 7pm, Dolores Huerta / Vera Cruz Room "Since the central theme of the Bible is—the sufferings and glory of Christ, we resolve to read the Bible as the story of salvation, not moralistic lessons. We resolve to see how the law, the ceremonies, and the history all point us to their fulfillment in the coming of the Deliverer promised in Genesis 3:15 and throughout the Bible." -Page 2 from the Redeemer visions and values orientation guide. Sometimes it's hard to see all these things while reading the Bible. But fear not, we have a FNF Series just to help! Join us Friday at 7pm in the Dolores Huerta/Vera Cruz (in the Old Student Center beneath the LGBT resource center) as we learn how to read our bible with intentional and analytical eyes.

To me it was an honor to have met her, such an intellectual woman, a woman with humble beginnings with monumental desire to help the less fortunate, an incredible woman with a heart of a Lion, she is an educator, a fighter of human rights an advocate voice, she teaches individuals that they have personal power that needs to be coupled with responsibility and cooperation to create the changes needed to improve their lives.

We speak with Dolores Huerta of the United Farm Workers of America and Francis Fox Piven, one of the country’s leading sociologists, about class and organized labor during Reagan’s presidency. [Includes transcript] As we move to the issue of workers right’s and labor under Ronald Reagan. Many critics of the former president recall with great anger the policies of Reagonomics. His administration was one of the worst in history for organized labor. And his track record was consistent almost from the beginning of his career in the public eye. In the late 1940’s, as president of the Screen Actors’ Guild union, Ronald Reagan testified before the House Un-American Activities Committee on so-called "subversive activity" in Hollywood, reporting on actors, directors, and screenwriters deemed Communist sympathizers. And in the 1960’s and 70’s, as Governor of the State of California, Reagan fought the efforts of migrant farm workers to win union contracts, vetoing the Agricultural Labor Relations Act, ...
Saw director Diego Luna's film Cesar Chavez - a docudrama about the non-violent civil rights advocate and union organizer of the farm workers in California - a film worth seeing for all of you who do not know about this important man and the National Farm Workers Association he co-founded with Dolores Huerta. The very good performer, Michael Pena plays Chavez, but physically he is a very different body type from Cesar Chavez who was a lean, intense looking man, so the mis-casting intruded on my memory of Chavez. Yet Pena conveys the quiet indomitable spirit and rage of those who fight a system which is tied to corporate dollars.and how that determination can eventually succeed..(for the time being.) The steps to realize social justice and the toll on the workers and their families including Chavez' own conflict with his son brings a personal element to the movie. The farm workers' struggles inspired people all over the world to boycott grapes - even I did at the time.
I have to say, I really liked Michael Peña as Cesar Chavez. Such a good actor. Rosario Dawson as Dolores Huerta was ok...
"Cesar Chavez" the movie! OMG--so many mixed emotions were going through me. I knew I would be angry all over again, but watching the mistreatment of innocent people just trying to make an honest living only made me cry. There was so much pride for Cesar, his wife, his family, Dolores Huerta, and all the campesinos who risked everything to obtain their dignity. There was incredulity--I didn't remember that Nixon tried to support the growers by exporting the grapes. The loss of our champion Robert Kennedy made me cry again. I shouldn't tell you everything--it is a must see!
Spend the day in service tomorrow, in honor of Cesar Chavez & Dolores Huerta, and their commitment to social -- and environmental -- justice.

Dolores Huerta is one of my sheros. She says we need more feminists-people who believe in civil rights, reproductive rights and activism. She is a defender of democracy. "We are not consumers, we are citizens." Young people need to get ethnic studies in K-6 so that they understand history. She says get signed up for health insurance!
Ending my night right. I met Dolores Huerta at St. Mary's College - my only link to Cesar Chavez - what an inspiring woman.
The Cesar Chavez movie was incredible. Such a smart, humble, pacificst, strong man. Our people should be grateful for his work and for that of Dolores Huerta's. Let us continue his work, fighting for the human rights of our gente. Que viva la causa!
Call me a hypocritical but *** I'm so freaking tired of seeing all these *** things about Cesar Chavez. I mean why is there such a big *** deal made about him. I get it, he was a key part of our history but how long do people really need to drag something out. I understand learning from the past but don't dwell in it. Personally I don't agree with most of his ideals and tactics as a leader, I don't like what he represents or the fact that he has become the major face of something that is so much bigger than him. Same thing goes for Dolores Huerta. Common Tucson, move past it/them. A movie, protest and a *** holiday? Same thing goes for Martin Luther King in my eyes..I'm so over all these *** posts.

United Farm Workers FOUNDER DOLORES HUERTA PARTNERS WITH COVERED CALIFORNIA TO PROMOTE LATINO ENROLLMENT Human Rights Activist Featured in Radio Ads and Video Urging Californians to Sign Up for Health Insurance Coverage SACRAMENTO, Calif. — Covered California™ announced today that Dolores Huerta, co-founder of United Farm Workers and a longtime civil rights leader, will appeal to Californians, especially Latinos, to get health care coverage before the end of open enrollment, March 31. Huerta, a close ally of Cesar Chavez, is featured in radio spots and on videos available on YouTube, in English and Spanish, calling on Latinos to sign up for insurance. In the segments, Huerta reminds her audience that access to health care is a cornerstone of the decades-long struggle for Latino-American equality and that Latinos’ participation will drive the success of the new marketplace. “If Cesar (Chavez) were here today, he would say to everyone who needs to get enrolled, especially our young people, ‘We hav ...
Quoted by Rachel Maddow: Fox News' Bill O'Reilly wants to know: "There's got to be some downside to having a woman president, right? Something that may not fit with that office, correct?" He added: "There haven't been that many strong women leaders throughout history." Dear Bill: What planet are you living on? Strong women leaders throughout history? Here are just a few names and any one of them would have been or would be a strong U.S. President: Golda Meir, Aung San Suu Kyi, Eleanor of Aquitaine, Susan B. Anthony, Elizabeth Cady Stanton, La Donna Harris, Dolores Huerta, Elizabeth Warren, Emmeline Pankhurst, Amy Klobuchar, Julia Gillard, Margaret Chan, Drew Gilpin Faust, Phebe Novakovic, Angela Ahrendts, Safra Catz, Simone Veil, Isabelle Ealet, Susan Ivey,Heidi Miller, Susan Wagner, Hillary Clinton, Susan Wojcicki, and Lauren Zalaznick. That should get you started, Bill, and any one of these ladies would have or would now kick your arrogant, sexist, condescending butt in about one minute.

last night I had to pleasure of attending the world premiere of Diego Luna's "Cesar Chavez". with Diego, America Ferrera, Michael Peña and the real Dolores Huerta all in attendance... I gotta say... I dunno if it's cuz I was born in the Houston barrios and raised Californian or what but this film touched me like no other film has in quite a while. From the first time I heard "Si se puede" I already started getting teary... and I was crying by the end. not cuz of sadness but just cuz I was so moved & inspired... this film comes out in March in the US... please support! Diego was so freakin' awesome & his cast/crew so down to earth!
There is nothing quite like putting together a montage of great historical speeches, to inspire you to make a positive impact on the world. Over the past few days I’ve watched hours of footage from Carl Sagan, Nelson Mandela, Desmond Tutu, Harvey Milk, the Dalai Lama, John Lennon, Oprah, Princess Diana, Steve Jobs, Margaret Thatcher, Reagan, Mother Teresa, Cesar Chavez, Dolores Huerta, Winston Churchill, Eleanor Roosevelt, Martin Luther King, JFK, Harvey Milk, Gandhi, Daniel Inouye and many more. for Exceptional Speaking
It's becoming very clear that the race for Assembly District 15 (north Oakland to Pinole), is now a race between ACDCC member Elizabeth Echols and former Richmond council member Tony Thurmond. We'll know soon how much $ all candidates have raised so far, but these two are at least leading the battles of the endorsements. Echols has AFT and SEIU California on her side, as well as Loni Hancock, Assemblymember Nancy Skinner, Bill Quirk, most Berkeley Council members and other assorted local elected officials. Tony Thurmond has the Nurses union and also SEIU. He also has AG Kamala Harris, Rep. George Miller, Mark DeSaulnier, Sandre Swanson, Phil Ting, and even more assorted local elected officials. He also has Dolores Huerta's endorsement. While Echols has a few endorsements from Contra Costa county and Thurmond quite a few more from Alameda county, this seems to be very much a Alameda vs. Contra Costa sort of race. About 60% of the voters are in Alameda. Left in the dust are environmental lawyer Andy Kat ...

A few thoughts on Chicano Politics this year and next. We lost Sal Castro presence pero esta presente. Mandela's passing reminds us the struggle against racism/injustice is a life work, life long LA UAW leader Pete Beltan left a great legacy especialy fighting plant closures, as did Raul Arreola fighting for better education alongside Sal Castro. And la lucha continua. Xavier Becerra keeps increasing clout among Democrats and Raul Grijalva is the progressive leader in the House of Representative, Maria Elena Durazo and Gil Cedillo give local and national leadership. Nury Martinez is the only woman on the City Council. Gloria Molina still wields lots of power well but faces term limits this year, Hilda Solis stands in the wings to lead in the county and Dolores Huerta still inspires Chicana/peoples power, Eliseo Medina now focuses on immigrant rights and Rudy Acuna just keeps on battling for progressive Chicano Studies. Millions more of us are active but we all have to increase our commitment and ef ...
RIP Nelson Mandela, Che Guevara, Cesar Chavez, Martin Luther King, Dolores Huerta, Rosa Parks and all those who sacrificed for what's right. Those who have negative thoughts about these people can suck a you know what this holiday season.
