Former United States President Barrack Obama is celebrating American labor leader and civil rights activist Dolores Huerta’s 94th birthday today.

Taking to X, Obama said: “Happy 94th birthday, Dolores! When I was a young organizer, reading about @DoloresHuerta’s life and work showed me what was possible.”

Huerta helped organize the Delano grape strike in 1965 in California and was the lead negotiator in the workers’ contract that was created after the strike.

Obama described Huerta as one of America’s great labor and civil rights icons, having devoted her entire life to advocating for marginalized communities.

“She knows the power of community organizing, and through the Dolores Huerta Foundation, she continues to train and mentor new activists and organizers. She also came up with a pretty good slogan, “Si, se puede.” Yes, we can”, wrote Obama.
