Labor Leader and Civil Rights Activist Dolores Huerta Appears in Digital Ad Endorsing Susana Mendoza for Mayor

 

CHICAGO, IL – Today, legendary activist and community organizer Dolores Huerta endorsed Susana Mendoza for Chicago mayor in a digital ad released by the campaign. Huerta has spent her life fighting for immigrants and working families, including co-founding the National Farm Workers Association with César Chávez in 1962. She currently serves as the president of the Dolores Huerta Foundation, championing social justice issues for the working class, women, and children.

“The work of my life has been standing up for workers, immigrants, women, human rights, and civil rights,” said Dolores Huerta. “Susana Mendoza is the next generation to carry on this fight. She’s a battle-tested fighter who champions the little guy and is an experienced, committed, and hardworking visionary. Sí, se puede con Susana Mendoza.”

“Dolores Huerta has been a personal hero and role model throughout my life, and I am so honored to have her endorsement,” said Susana Mendoza. “Dolores is a tireless fighter who has spent her life standing up for women, worker, and immigrant rights. As mayor, I will be a steadfast advocate for the social justice causes we both believe in and never back down when our values are under threat. With the support of Dolores and grassroots activists like her across Chicago, I know we can tackle the big challenges we face, put our neighborhoods first, and lift up every community across our city.
