Dolores Huerta, the civil rights, workers and women’s advocate who co-founded the United Farm Workers of America in 1962, was named one of 13 recipients of the Presidential Medal of Freedom on Friday. The Medal of Freedom is the nation’s highest civilian honor, presented to individuals who have made especially meritorious contributions to the the United States. The awards will be presented at the White House in late spring.
I literally adore this woman <3
