Dolores Huerta, the iconic civil rights activist who co-founded United Farm Workers of America in 1962 with Cesar Chavez, officially endorsed Hillary Clinton yesterday, saying she would rather have a woman in the White House than a Latino Republican.

“Some of those candidates who are Latinos in reality don’t represent the values of the Latino community, who for the most part are working people,” Huerta told Fox News Latino.”They are against their aspirations.”

Huerta has long-used Twitter to broadcast her strong support of progressive policies aimed at making the Latino community stronger in the U.S. Here are some of her most rallying tweets.

You’re not sure why, but it seemed like a good idea to keep your last doll all enclosed during the party, lest she end up in rehab à la Lindsay Lohan.

There was seating drama.

Deciding where everyone was going to sit and who would be at the head table created escándalos worthy of a telenovela.

Centerpieces were works of art.

These one-of-a-kind works of art took HOURS to make. You had to practically glue them down to the tables so no one would take them home.

Your quince photos were a production.

Uh, at the time it seemed like a good idea to take “outdoor” photos without going outdoors. What were we thinking?
