Dolores Huerta
Founder & President of the Dolores Huerta Foundation
Dolores Huerta is a civil rights activist and community organizer. She has worked for labor rights and social justice for over 50 years. In 1962, she and Cesar Chavez founded the United Farm Workers union. She served as Vice President and played a critical role in many of the union’s accomplishments for four decades. In 2002, she received the Puffin/Nation $100,000 prize for Creative Citizenship which she used to establish the Dolores Huerta Foundation (DHF). DHF is connecting groundbreaking community-based organizing to state and national movements to register and educate voters; advocate for education reform; bring about infrastructure improvements in low-income communities; advocate for greater equality for the LGBT community; and create strong leadership development. She has received numerous awards: among them The Eleanor Roosevelt Humans Rights Award from President Clinton in 1998. In 2012 President Obama bestowed Dolores with The Presidential Medal of Freedom, the highest civilian honor in the United States.

Camila Güiza-Chavez
Co-Director of Havenly

Camila gained a passion for organizing against injustice by watching the work of her parents and learning from the rich political history of her home, the Bay Area. She moved to New Haven to attend Yale, where she studied Ethnicity, Race, and Migration as an undergraduate. She soon realized that the real education she was seeking would come from working alongside organizers in the immigrant justice movement in New Haven, many of whom she continues to build with today as part of a group called Semilla Collective. Camila is currently Co-Director at Havenly, an organization dedicated to building community power with immigrant and refugee women.
