At 87, Dolores Huerta still has a quite a pair of lungs on her.
“Who’s got the power?” she yelled from the stage at Saturday’s 25th annual César Chávez march and fiesta.

“We’ve got the power!” a crowd of hundreds gathered at the National Hispanic Cultural Center shouted back.
Huerta joined marchers through the streets of Albuquerque and was the keynote speaker during the fiesta that followed.
