Pictured: UFW co-founder Dolores Huerta recently visited Malabar Elementary School where she met with students in Rosa Serrano-Overstreet’s classroom before speaking to students and parents assembled in the school’s auditorium. She told students that education is a path toward success in life. She elaborated upon her personal life experiences including organizing farm workers and helping to advance the cause of marginalized communities. Huerta’s visit was the result of Serrano-Overstreet winning a Dolores Huerta Foundation contest: the teacher created a classroom lesson plan that teaches students about the life of Dolores Huerta.
