Acclaimed photojournalist Henry A. Barrios captured Dolores Huerta on her 90th birthday on April 10, 2020. Huerta stepped out of her daughters house and waved as a parade of family and friends drove by honking horns, playing and singing music and wishing the beloved leader a happy birthday.
People drove by to comply with the social distancing restrictions that are encouraged to stop the stop transmission of the Coronavirus that has spread throughout the world.
Huerta, co-founder of the United Farm Workers Union and founder of the Dolores Huerta Foundation, continues to be involved in current labor, social, and political issues.
In 2018, Governor Jerry Brown designated April 10th as Dolores Huerta Day, a recognition of her achievements as a Civil rights leader and community organizer. She is the first and only living person to hold this honor.
