Dolores Huerta: Alongside the late César Chávez, Huerta co-founded what would eventually become the United Farm Workers (UFW) labor union. For her service to her community and beyond (the Delano grape strike of 1965, lobbying for Aid to Families with Dependent Children), she's been the recipient of numerous awards from labor and women's organizations alike, making her a leading role model among Latinos and activists.

Idár strove to advance the civil rights of Mexican-Americans. Jovita wrote articles under a pseudonym, exposing the poor living conditions of Mexican American workers and supported the Mexican Revolution which started in 1910.
A stay in California wouldn’t be complete without a road trip on the Pacific Coast Highway. The iconic Hwy 1 continues along most of the California coast through to Oregon and Washington and can be enjoyed at any pace… whether it’s over the course of 1 day or 2 weeks. Road trips are one of my favorite ways to travel, and of course I love my Southern California home, so I couldn’t think of a better girl’s getaway than taking this coastal road trip!
