Dolores Huerta, civil rights activist, will join Amelia for the premiere episode. Mrs. Huerta worked closely with César E. Chavez in the National Farm Workers Association and its successor, United Farm Workers, from its founding in 1962 until 1999. In 1963, she successfully lobbied for Aid for Dependent Families and disability insurance for farm workers and was instrumental in the enactment of the Agricultural Labor Relations Act of 1975. The first law of its kind in the United States, it granted farm workers in California the right to collectively organize and bargain for better wages and working conditions. Awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom in 2012 by President Barack Obama, at 86, Mrs. Huerta continues to work on behalf of immigration, income equality and the rights of women and Latinos.
