Labor Activist Dolores Huerta Tells California Democrats Schools Should Not Graduate White Supremacists

Naomi Lim, Washington Examiner, November 18, 2023

Labor activist Dolores Huerta urged schools to reevaluate their curricula so they do not graduate white supremacists.

“I don’t think that any public school in America should ever graduate a person who is going to be a neo-Nazi or a white supremacist,” Huerta said Saturday in Sacramento, California. “If we can actually put civic, citizen responsibilities back into our schools because we don’t have that right now. I mean, it is really alarming how many people who come out of our schools that don’t vote.”

Huerta, 93, whose United Farm Workers union publicly backed President Joe Biden‘s 2024 campaign last September, made the comments while addressing California Democrats during the state party’s 2023 endorsing convention as she expressed support for teachers and criticized “right-wing fascism” that she said is encouraging the banning of books across the country.
