En La Lucha (student art)
In honor of the womxn in the struggle for farm workers’ rights and dignity, and all those who turn the world order upside down. In 2018, I was part of an International Working Women’s Day celebration in Eastside San Jose, where Dolores Huerta made a last-minute appearance and speech. This painting is partially inspired by photos of Dolores as a young woman, but also dedicated to the many Xicanas and women who dedicate their time, energy, and resources to fighting for social justice.
