In 1962 she and Cesar Chavez formed the National Farm Workers Association, the predecessor to the UFW. She directed the UFW's national grape boycott, resulting in the entire California table grape industry signing a three-year collective bargaining agreement with the UFW.
Dolores Huerta continues to work long hours on behalf of the rights of farm workers, immigrants and women, and she serves as president of the Dolores Huerta Foundation. She has been arrested 22 times for nonviolent, peaceful protests.

Richard Bach, author of Jonathon Livingston Seagull, Illusions, One, The Bridge Across Forever, and numerous other books talks about his most recent book Hypnotizing Maria. Publisher's Weekly: "The hero of Bach's new book, pilot and flight instructor Jamie Forbes, is on a routine run when Maria, the panicked spouse of another pilot, radios that her husband has collapsed at the controls. Forbes talks her through the steps to land safely. Maria's explanation to reporters that Forbes “hypnotized” her sparks a series of memories for Jamie, and the events that follow force him to examine what constitutes reality, to contemplate what lies beyond the edges of our carefully constructed worlds." Richard will be speaking tonight, 9/24/09, at 7 pm, at Powell's Books at Cedar Hills Crossing in Beaverton, OR.
Stephanie Potter speaks with filmmaker Rober Bates who with Brian Kimmel created the documentary "Ingredients: The Local Food Movement Takes Root."
