Huerta made the announcement during a virtual rally for economic and social justice
Watertown, MA –– Today, civil rights icon Dolores Huerta endorsed Congressman Joe Kennedy III in his bid for U.S. Senate. The announcement comes after a virtual rally for Latinx supporters during which Huerta and Kennedy discussed social and economic justice.
“In these times, when so many of our essential workers are being affected by the pandemic and all over the United States, so many Latinos, indigenous people, and people of color have been hit so hard by this pandemic, it really cries out why we need leadership like yours in the Senate,” Dolores Huerta said to Kennedy. “And so for everybody that’s listening we got to work as hard as we can to make sure that Joe Kennedy is going to take his seat in the U.S. Senate.”
“Dolores Huerta defines strength, conviction, and moxie,” said Congressman Joe Kennedy III. “She fights every day for the rights of women, immigrants, and workers in her communities. She has given every inch of herself to the fight for social and economic justice for all. I am humbled beyond measure to have her join us.”
