Outlawing Dolores Huerta: The Tucson Diaries


In 2006, Presidential Medal of Freedom Winner and United Farm Workers Co-Founder Dolores Huerta visited Tucson High School in Arizona and delivered a speech. As part of her speech, she stated "Republicans Hate Latinos." The statement was used in 2010 by Arizona Attorney General Tom Horne and other Arizona Politicians to justify the passage of House Bill 2281-The Ethnic Studies Ban.

Outlawing Dolores: The Tucson Diaries is an extended interview from documentary Outlawing Shakespeare: The Battle for the Tucson Mind. Both documentaries have been produced with the intent to give a greater context to some of the cultural battles currently occurring in the United States, as of 2013. This is the first extended interview where Dolores Huerta addresses the 2006 comment directly.
