Maria Elena Durazo

Maria Elena Durazo, left, and her husband, labor organizer Miguel Contreras, lead an AFL-CIO march at Pershing Square in Los Angeles. The protest targeted the New Otani Hotel, which did not have a union. Contreras' death in 2005 at the age of 52, apparently of a heart attack, devastated Durazo and their son Michael, who was 14 at the time.Los Angeles Times
