¡Sí Se Puede!
Dolores Huerta is among the most important, yet least known, activists in American history. An equal partner in co-founding the first farm workers unions with Cesar Chavez, her enormous contributions have gone largely unrecognized.
Dolores tirelessly led the fight for racial and labor justice alongside Chavez, becoming one of the most defiant feminists of the twentieth century—and she continues the fight to this day, at 87.

NASA engineer Jose Hernandez remembers exactly where he was when he heard the first Hispanic-American had been chosen to travel into space.
"I was hoeing a row of sugar beets in a field near Stockton, Calif., and I heard on my transistor radio that Franklin Chang-Diaz had been selected for the Astronaut Corps," says Hernandez, 41, who was a senior in high school at the time.

Finding The American Dream, A Story of Entrepreneurship and Adventures
Interview with Chester Ruiz, Founder of DreamerLogix
Stanford Hispanic Broadcasting // Radio Shows: Atenea Americana
For this program, we are talking with Chester Ruiz, founder of dreamerlogix.com. He is a first generation Californian with Nicaraguan heritage, but also an entrepreneur, self-made millionaire, and civil rights activist. Today, he is telling us about his story, his background, accomplishments, lifelong fights and future plans.
Chester explains how home ownership and family is the foundation of most immigrants and how the American dream is all related with legal residency, family, the right to work and education. This American dream is closely tied to his ideas for civil rights and to his new enterprise.
This American story starts with the amazing adventure of his dad. Nineteen years old Mr. Ruiz Senior one day on 1939 decided to drive his car north, a new Ford model in an adventure throughout the rain forest, rivers, and the unknown all the way from Managua, Nicaragua to San Antonio, Texas. All this adventure took place way before the Pan-American highway was build and all the roads paved and improved highways systems were built. Later he went to the world exposition in San Francisco, where he fall in love with the possibilities, the innovations, the country and its wonders. After he was back in Managua some experts from the US corp of Engineers find out about his trip, and they asked him to work with them in the mapping and construction of the Pan-American Highway that they were then planning to build. After few years building it, he got legal residency and moved with his the new wife, an elementary school geography teacher, to San Francisco.
During this conversation, Ruiz told us about his experiences growing up in San Francisco, where a paper route let him save in three years enough money for a new family investing, that later lets them learn new skills and bring more seed money for other bigger enterprises to come. He also told us the story about how he got involved with Cesar Chavez and the fights for civil rights in his youth, and how these experiences had marked him to invest in this new start-up, to help immigrants and dreamers to achieve legal status.
