Learn to do right! Seek justice, encourage the oppressed. Defend the cause of the fatherless, plead the case of the widow." Isaiah 1:17

"In any case we clearly see...that some opportune remedy must be found quickly for the misery and wretchedness pressing so unjustly on the majority of the working class...working men have been surrendered, isolated and helpless, to the hardheartedness of employers and the greed of unchecked competition"Rerum Novarum. . . (On the Condition of Labor)—Pope Leo XIII, 1891

"We as women... have got to put big lights around our accomplishments...and our ideas and not feel we are being egotistical when we do that. Because it's a way of letting the world know that, yes, we as women can accomplish great things" Dolores Huerta

Maria Marotta

Dolores Huerta


-Heurta dedicated her life to those who could not speak for themselves. Her great love for the oppressed encourages us to also beadvocates of our faith-By advocating for poor and opressed farmers, Dolores Heurta willinginly placed herself in danger. Although at times there may be opposition, we should always stand for what is good and right, especially when defending our neighbors.- Huerta worked to protect the foundational pricincible of just business in society. When she began teaching in poor schools, she realized that hard working people still could not afford food or shelter. The farmers would only be paid about 75 cents an hour.- The Old Law mandated the use of just scales. This law cammands that there should be justice in business, but the people in Heurta's community were not being paid fairly. She quickly took action to protect their right to be given resonable wages for their hard work

-Heurta's more recent social work focuses on the acceptance of Mexican immigrants. She promotes the love and protection of the less fortunate. Jesus stressed the love of the oppressed and Heurta reiterates this importance. -Although some immigrants may enter the US illegally, Heutra speaks of mercy for those seeking a better life. This message echos God's mercy for our own sins.

-I can spread the mission of Dolores Huerta by advocating for the rights of the poor and opproessed.-The support of unpriviliged illegal immigrants is crucial. By advocating for their rights, more people raised in poverty have the chance to secure a job and better working conditions.
