The 2018 Kieve Lecture with Dolores Huerta

Join CCSRE for their 13th annual Kieve Lecture, featuring American labor leader and activist Dolores Huerta.

Huerta was the co-founder of the National Farmworkers Association, which later became the United Farm Workers. She helped organize the Delano grape strike in 1965, and was the lead negotiator in the workers’ contract that was created after the strike. For decades, Ms. Huerta has been a leader in movements for workers' and womens' rights, and was an honorary co-chair of the 2017 Women's March on Washington.

Huerta has received numerous awards for her advocacy, including the United States Presidential Eleanor Roosevelt Award for Human Rights and the Presidential Medal of Freedom. She is now president of the Dolores Huerta Foundation, a grassroots organization that "creates leadership opportunities for community organizing, leadership development, civic engagement, and policy advocacy."

Sponsors also include: Escobedo Fund for Chicano Research, Chicanx/Latinx Studies, Haas Center for Public Service, Program in Feminist, Gender and Sexuality Studies, Queer Student Resources, and the Stanford Humanities Center.
