Radcliffe Day 2019 | Radcliffe Medalist Dolores Huerta

The activist Dolores Huerta is awarded the Radcliffe Medal, presented annually to an individual who has had a transformative impact on society. Huerta has spent the past 60 years fighting to secure the rights of marginalized people and communities. She is a living civil rights icon who, despite the obstacles she has faced, has held fast to her belief that political organizing and engagement can produce meaningful change.
