CIVIL RIGHTS ICON DOLORES HUERTA ANNOUNCES SUPPORT FOR ESMERALDA SORIA FOR CONGRESS
Dolores Huerta, Labor champion and civil rights activist in her mission to developing leaders and advocating for the working poor, women, and children, shows her support for Esmeralda Soria for Congress.
FRESNO, C.A. – Today, Dolores Huerta was joined by elected officials and labor leaders from across the Valley to announce her support for Esmeralda Soria for Congress.
To earn the endorsement of Dolores Huerta means gaining the support of a civil rights icon who has dedicated her life to developing leaders and advocating for the working poor, women, and children, values that Esmeralda Soria for Congress also stands by.
Esmeralda Soria will become the first Latina to represent the Central Valley in Congress, committed to bringing much needed resources to forgotten communities, advocating on behalf of our working class who are affected by the high costs of living, healthcare, and who have lost faith in their D.C. representatives.
“Compared to Jim Costa’s long decades in U.S. Congress, we know what she has done, it begs us to question what Costa has done. The reason I am standing here today is because I think that the Valley needs someone who is going to fight for farmworker families not against them. Somebody who is going to bring the resources that we need to the Valley. Costa has never made people in the Valley a priority. We can all breathe a sigh of relief because now we have a champion. We have somebody that we really can have confidence in, that we can have trust in, someone that we know is going to be there for all of us. For labor, for working families, for education, and to fight for the infrastructure that we need,” said Dolores Huerta.
Dolores Huerta has served as an inspiration to many, including Congressional candidate, Esmeralda Soria, a daughter of farmworker immigrants and an advocate for underserved communities who is working hard to bring much needed new leadership and a new perspective to D.C. politics.
“I am proud of the endorsements that I have received over the last six months of working families of labor groups because as Dolores mentioned, for far too long our families have been ignored, for far too long our families haven’t had a voice, and for far too long we haven’t had a seat at the table. This isn’t about one person; this is about working families in the Valley that need our help,” said Esmeralda Soria.
