Dolores Huerta is currently the President of the Dolores Huerta Foundation dedicated to Community Organizing. She co-founded the United Farm Workers with Cesar E. Chavez and holds the emeritus positions of the UFW as Secretary Treasurer and First Vice President Emeritus. She is also an active member of the Fund for the Feminist Majority.

As the legislative advocate for the Community Service Organization and the United Farm Workers Union, she was instrumental in passing historic legislation: Disability Insurance for farm workers, Voting ballots in the Spanish language, Driver’s Licenses in the driver’s ethnic language, Eligibility for Public Assistance for resident immigrants, the end of the infamous “bracero” program, and legalization for 1 million farm workers under the Immigration Reform Act of l984-85.

Kennedy medical plan that covered farmworker families, the Juan de la Cruz pension fund (paid for by employers), job security, seniority rights, rest periods, paid vacations and holidays, and protections from pesticides in union contracts. .

Chavez, they established the National Farm Workers Service Center which builds low-income housing throughout the U.S. and Farm Worker communications who have established Radio Campesina stations in California, Washington and Arizona.
