    Dolores Huerta should not be commemorated as a civil rights activist for what she and her goons at the United Farm Workers union (UFW) did to farmworkers. After abandoning Gerawan farmworkers for over two decades, she spent the last five years trying to force farmworkers into a bad contract by preventing workers votes from being counted. It took going to the Fifth District Court of Appeals and the California Supreme Court to compel a vote count. When the vote finally took into affect the votes were against the UFW six to one. To add insult to injury, just two years ago a court found the union owed almost $2 million in fees and for not paying its own organizers. That’s not an organization for equality or stopping discrimination. Huerta and the UFW are part of the problem! To learn more please visit:
