DH in Action: Huerta Sounds Call to ‘organize Texas’ at Planned Parenthood South Texas 4/15/16

IMG_7861Dolores Huerta, along with Planned Parenthood Federation of America President Cecile Richards, spoke to a group of 1,000 at  a Planned Parenthood South Texas luncheon.

This comes on the heels of San Antonio South Texas chapter opening up a new facility. This is a big accomplishment for the women of Texas.

The two two trailblazing women had a powerful discussion about the historic movements they’ve led and the epic battles they’ve fought to make our nation more fair and just for everyone.

Dolores told the crowd, “We’ve got a challenge here in Texas,” a state that prides itself on being “number one,” she said. “We’ve got to think of how we can organize, so that Texas can be number one in terms of social justice … It’s incumbent upon all of us to think of what (we can) do to move our agenda forward in a political way, in an electoral way.”
