Due to an editing error in Susan Samuels Drake’s “Interview with Dolores Huerta” (September issue), Drake’s role with the United Farm Workers was incorrectly stated. Although she was with the farm workers’ movement for more than a decade, she served as Chavez’s secretary for only three years, a few months of that time for Huerta, as well.

The interview should also have noted that the United Farm Workers is an affiliate of the AFL-CIO.
