SAN JOSE, CA – On Wednesday, April 15, 2020 Santa Clara County Board of Education signed a resolution to formally honor the life of Dolores Huerta. This resolution serves as a tribute to an American labor leader and civil rights activist who worked to protect the rights of farmworkers including worker protection, pesticide use, and immigration reform.
The Santa Clara County Office of Education Region 1 lead for Migrant Education programming, provides direct services to approximately 700 school-age migrant students. Huerta’s endeavors raised generations with the help and cooperation of the citizens who drive the farmworkers movement and ensuring underrepresented and underserved communities have access, experiences, and resources.
By signing this resolution both the County Board of Education and SCCOE recognize the legacy of this outstanding Mexican-American leader. Huerta’s many contributions to justice and equity has endeavored to raise generations with the help and cooperation of the citizens who drive the farmworkers movement. Her unrelentless organizing has highlighted the interconnectedness and interdependence of hard work and sacrifice.
