DHF has recently expanded our partnership with the Martin Luther King Jr. Freedom Center based in Oakland. Throughout the summer, students underwent an intense bootcamp based on the nonviolent teachings of MLK Jr. that included hands-on civic engagement opportunities, such as door-to-door voter registration in cities throughout the Pacific Coast.
July 8th though the 14th, 2018, about 30 MLK Jr. students stayed at the Cesar Chavez National Monument in Nuestra Señora Reina de la Paz and went door-to-door to register voters in Bakersfield. Dolores Huerta visited La Paz to talk to the group about the importance and challenges of organizing. Afterwards, Camila Chavez gave the MLK Jr. students a tour and detailed her childhood experiences growing up in La Paz before it became a national monument.
The Dolores Huerta Foundation is pleased to welcome student volunteers from The MLK Freedom Center founded by Congresswoman Barbara Lee.
Every summer a group of high school and college students from the Odell Center in Washington and the MLK Freedom Center in Oakland, spend time in a targeted location to engage in non-partisan voter outreach and education while receiving daily instruction on civic engagement. This is their 24th year implementing similar mobilizations.
The purpose is to provide classes and rigorous civic engagement experience to students that prepares them for ongoing civic engagement and community organizing, and encourages a life-long commitment to public service and the further development of democracy.
This summer, the group will work with the DHF to register voters in the Central Valley from July 2nd – August 2nd.
