Dolores Huerta Arrested While Calling on Fresno Board of Supervisors to Support Caregivers and Care Recipients, 8/20/19

Dolores Huerta Arrested While Calling on Fresno Board of Supervisors to Support Caregivers and Care Recipients, 8/20/19

Caregivers with the In-Home Supportive Services (IHSS)  program and SEIU Local 2015, joined by Dolores Huerta, local veterans, faith leaders, and social justice groups, shut down the county’s regularly scheduled meeting on Tuesday, August 20th, 2019. The demonstrators called on the Board of Supervisors to represent and protect the needs of thousands of caregivers and their constituents. Dolores Huerta was arrested, along with seven other demonstrators, at the Fresno County Board of Supervisors while calling for a living wage for caregivers.

Dolores stated, “In-home caregivers haven’t received a decent wage increase in over 10 years. Meanwhile, the Fresno County Board of Supervisors have given themselves a hefty salary increase. I decided to get arrested because I’m angry about the way home care workers are being treated. I was appalled by the way the sheriffs were mistreating Arnulfo De La Cruz, Executive Vice President of SEIU Local 2015. He was standing there peacefully when they grabbed him by the neck. The sheriffs were behaving in a brutish and aggressive manner in response to our peaceful protest. I am proud to stand with the over 17,000 support caregivers and their care recipients. These workers save the county upwards of $50,000 a year in providing services to the county’s elderly and differently-abled. They deserve a living wage! Si Se Puede!”

Disarm Hate! Press Conference to Object to Republican Congressman Kevin McCarthy’s Response to Recent Mass Shootings, 8/8/19, 10:30 am

Join Dolores Huerta Foundation, First and Always Melanin (FAAM) and Women’s March Kern County, Faith in the Valley with other local civil rights organizations and community members at a press conference to address the importance of creating policies that support education and mental health in order to combat violence and discrimination which disproportionately targets communities of color and the LGBTQ+ community.

Thursday, August 8th, 2019

10:30 am

 Congressman Kevin McCarthy’s Office

4100 Empire Dr #150

Bakersfield, CA 93309


In the aftermath of two mass shootings in El Paso, Texas and Dayton, Ohio, Rep. Kevin McCarthy of California’s 23rd congressional district blamed the shootings on video games that “dehumanize individuals” and encourage violence. Research shows there is no correlation between video-game revenue  and the number of violent gun deaths.* In fact, the U.S. is the third-leading country in video-game revenue per person, behind Japan and South Korea. Yet, the U.S. has more than four-times the amount of violent gun deaths than the other top nine countries in video-game revenue combined.

We believe the issue is not rooted in video-games but instead stems from white supremacy, racism, and lack of education touted by elected officials such as Rep. McCarthy and President Trump. We are calling on legislators to end gun violence and build safer communities by taking action to pass gun reform laws and implement policies that will save lives by banning assault weapons and requiring universal background checks.

* According to information cross-referencing data provided by both the Institute of Health Metrics and Evaluation and NewZoo there is no correlation between video-game revenue per person and the number of violent gun deaths per 100,000 people.

ORGANIZATIONS
The Dolores Huerta Foundation is a 501 (c)3 organization whose mission is to inspire and organize communities to build volunteer organizations empowered to pursue social justice. The foundation organizes at the grassroots level developing natural leaders by establishing Vecinos Unidos (“United Neighbors”) chapters in Kern, Tulare, and Fresno county. We create leadership opportunities for community organizing, leadership development, and civic engagement. Vecinos Unidos chapters work on policy advocacy in health and environment as well as education and youth development. Learn more about the Dolores Huerta Foundation at www.doloreshuerta.org.

Women’s March Kern County has oriented our mission of harnessing the power of diverse women and our communities toward creating transformative social change. We believe our diversity makes us stronger, and that working together sparks change. Women’s March Kern County is committed to pressing forward toward the vision of equity for all. We do not tolerate hate speech, bigotry, white supremacy, racism, misogyny, anti-Semitism, homophobia, islamophobia, transphobia, or any other form of hatred and division.

First And Always Melanin (FAAM) is a grassroots organization set to unite people of indigenous Afrikan origin. We seek to preserve the life of black people in Bakersfield, CA through activism, holistic health, knowledge of self, unity, cooperative sustainable economics, education, and by implementing programs that improve the community’s quality of life. Our main goal is to rebuild the black familial structure and to restore self-love among people of the indigenous Afrikan diaspora.

Faith in the Valley is a new city-, county- and Valley-wide organizing effort comprised of five multiracial, multi-faith PICO federations that are consolidating into one regional organization, building on their work over the past 15 years in five counties: Fresno, Merced, Kern, Stanislaus and San Joaquin. As an anchor member of PICO California, our mission is to unlock the power of people to put faith into action in the public square, and to advance a movement for racial justice and health equity. We seek to build relational power, lift up a new narrative about the lives of people of color, and drive civic engagement efforts that move our community priorities forward. The following are our core campaigns.

Dolores Huerta: Revolution in the Fields / Revolución en los Campos at the Haggin Museum in Stockton, Sat. 8/3, 1pm

Dolores Huerta: Revolution in the Fields / Revolución en los Campos at the Haggin Museum in Stockton, Sat. 8/3, 1pm

Join us for the opening of an incredible exhibit that tells the story that helped define the American experience: the farm workers labor movement of the 1960s and 1970s. The show draws on extensive Smithsonian curatorial research about legendary activist Dolores Huerta.

Huerta will be present as we celebrate her and her efforts in shaping the American experience.  Enjoy a glass of wine and light appetizers as you explore the exhibition and listen to a special music & poetry tribute to Dolores.

Dolores Huerta: Revolution in the Fields / Revolución en los Campos tells one of the compelling stories that helped define the American experience—the farm workers labor movement of the 1960s and 1970s. The show draws on extensive Smithsonian curatorial research about legendary activist Dolores Huerta (b.1930).

This exhibition explores Huerta’s public life as an activist, and also examines her life as a teacher, mother, communicator, organizer, lobbyist, and contract negotiator. The show reveals the multi-ethnic aspects of the labor movement story, including the important participation of Filipinos and African Americans.

The farm workers movement of the 1960s and 1970s advanced the cause of laborers, many of whom were Mexican American and who had been working and living in dire conditions. Its charismatic leader, César Chávez, has rightfully earned a place in American history. The exhibition will broaden the understanding of this movement through a careful look at the under-acknowledged contributions of Dolores Huerta, co-founder of the union, lobbyist, and contract negotiator on its behalf.


This exhibition features bilingual text (English-Spanish), reproductions of historic and personal photographs and documents, along with protest art from the farm workers’ movement.

DOWNLOAD THE DOLORES HUERTA APP

The Smithsonian Institution Traveling Exhibition Service (SITES) is proud to share the Dolores Huerta bilingual mobile app, designed to accompany the traveling exhibition Dolores Huerta: Revolution in the Fields/Revolución en los Campos. It features 16 videos of Dolores Huerta discussing her lifetime of fighting for the rights of farm workers.

To enhance your visit to this exhibition, we suggest visitors download the app before arriving to the museum. Guests can download the free app for IOS and Android. Search “Dolores Huerta” in the app store or on Google Play for Android.
