Si, Se Puede! Dolores Explains Where UFW’s Rallying Cry Came From

Dolores_HuertaToday, Dolores Huerta joined the National Fast4Families on the National Mall in Washington, D.C. At the Fasters’ Google Hangout, Dolores explained where the United Farm Workers’ rallying cry “Si, se puede!” came from:

“In California in the farm worker movement every night ended with Mass and prayer. But in Arizona, the “professional Hispanics” said “Oh, no Dolores! You can do Mass in California, but no se puede aqui in Arizona.” And I responded, “Si, se puede!” Not only can we, but we must.” —Dolores Huerta, Fast4Families, December 3, 2013
