AMIGO/A Sponsors at the $100 – $500 level will be listed in the program and receive a DH Poster. 

We are making a strong effort to have as much of the labor and resources donated, so there will be more funds available to support the important work of West Marin Community Services and the Dolores Huerta Foundation.

Dolores Huerta in Marin

Ms. Huerta is President and Founder of the Dolores Huerta Foundation. “¡Sì Se Puede!” (Yes, We Can!) was the motto she coined for the United Farm Workers, which she co-founded with Cesar Chavez in 1962. In 2012, President Obama awarded her the Presidential Medal of Freedom. At 89, she continues to inspire and organize communities to build volunteer organizations empowered to pursue social justice through her foundation.

Ms. Huerta was invited by West Marin Community Services, a non-profit organization dedicated to providing services that enhance the unity and well-being of the diverse rural population of Point Reyes Station and neighboring ranches, farms and villages. 

The series of events is entitled, “¡Sì Se Puede! West Marin.” The first planned event is a morning assembly for grade school students from Point Reyes, Tomales and Bolinas-Stinson Beach. The second is an afternoon assembly for students from Tomales High School, where Dolores will focus on the importance of education, civic engagement, and the 2020 Census for all students regardless of their ethnicity, gender or legal status. Prior to her visit, the students will be exposed to curricula covering this focus and on Huerta’s life’s work in civil rights, including her time with Cesar Chavez and the United Farm Workers. Her themes will be education, empowerment and weaving movements in the quest for unity and equity.

Also in August, under the auspices of the Marin County Library system, the PBS documentary “Dolores” has been shown in Bolinas, Point Reyes and Tomales. This documentary shows the remarkable life of a woman whose continued energy and focus would tire most us. Local libraries will feature books about Cesar Chavez and Dolores Huerta. One book, “Lado a Lado (Side by Side) is a children’s book about both civil rights leaders. It will be available for purchase at Point Reyes Books. 

In 2017, Marin County had a median household income of $113,908, one of the highest in California. Point Reyes Station’s median household income, on the other hand, was $31,2501. This figure did not include the income of ranch workers living outside of the village. What’s more, this figure did not include the income of many Hispanic residents who were never counted in the last decennial census. In the 2010 census, for example, only 9 Hispanics were counted in the village of Tomales (population: 204), a datum which did not reflect the reality of its local school population. This travesty of inequity is a factor that could easily reoccur in 2020 if our communities fail to become unified and empowered to correct it. 

West Marin Community Services

West Marin Community Services provides a diverse range of services, not provided by other organizations or government programs, to support the residents of West Marin. By leveraging government resources and partnering with other non-profit organization, WMCS assures that “no one goes hungry” and that low-income families receive emergency services when needed. WMCS programs include a holiday food and gift program, summer swim classes for kids and fiscal sponsorship support for community partners who work within its mission, such as the Tomales Bay Youth Center, Point Reyes Farmers’ Market, Point Reyes Community Garden, and the Rotary Peace Garden at Toby’s. Many local residents patronize the West Marin Community Thrift Store, which is one of their programs. Its profits are distributed to families in need. 

WMCS initiated Abriendo Caminos (Finding our Path). With support from the Marin Community Foundation, Abriendo Caminos continues as a “partnership developed in 2014 between agencies in the West Marin Collaborative and the local Latino community to increase civic engagement and leadership.” Abriendo Camino trainings have occurred within the Latino communities of Tomales, Point Reyes, Bolinas and San Geronimo. 

Immigration became an unexpected additional topic for Abriendo Caminos, and WMCS began working with Standing Together West Marin, Canal Alliance, Mainstreet Moms, and other groups/volunteers to offer guidance, legal advice, etc. WMCS presented numerous Know Your Rights workshops and developed a West Marin Rapid Response System to send alerts, verify rumors of ICE actions, and coordinate volunteer assistance. 

First and foremost we will engage in a 2020 census campaign targeted to all West Marin residents, but particularly to our Latino communities. We will encourage the count of all family members–adult and child–covering all households and individuals in West Marin. 

2020 Census: According to a 2018 legislative analyst report, California could lose tens of millions of dollars in federal funds from a significant undercount. A complete and accurate count in 2020 is important for certain regions in the state, like West Marin, due to a misallocation of funding within the state. Many local governments receive federal and state funds that are based on population counts. “As a result, the potential loss of funds due to an undercount may have a greater impact on certain localities and their budgets relative to our state-level analysis.” It may be assumed that, because our region is located within Marin County, one of the richest counties in the state, there are few poor families in need of assistance in our rural area. An accurate 2020 census count will show that not to be the case. Our schools and our medical clinics depend upon such funding. 

Secondly, we need to continue the effort to empower our diverse communities–Anglo and Latino–for a common pursuit of equity and civil engagement. Our greatest defense against the Administration’s vile behavior against our immigrant population is to unite. We need to break down the barriers of communication by building leadership, such as we did with Abriendo Caminos, and empowering all our adult residents, whether they be documented or undocumented. We will utilize the expertise of the Dolores Huerta Foundation to guide us in this endeavor. 

As part of our community organizing, we will be using excess funds to wager a campaign for voter registration, which also will be tied to helping those who are eligible to become U.S citizens. 

Equity requires empowerment. Empowered people, particularly those who can vote, will change America toward becoming a more humane, loving, peaceful and inclusive country that honors the diversity of its people. Dolores Huerta will inspire us to continue the fight toward this end.

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.

With the invaluable support of donors like you, the Dolores Huerta Foundation (DHF) has made great strides in recruiting, training, and developing grassroots volunteers to engage in voter outreach and education efforts. You can read more about it here Dolores Huerta Civic Engagement Program.

The stakes are incredibly high, this election year.  Every vote will matter and every eligible voter must be given the opportunity to vote.

Latinos in three critical Central Valley counties — Kern, Tulare and Fresno — have, historically been left out of conventional voter outreach efforts.  They represent tens of thousands of potential votes, but are often overlooked because they live in more rural areas.

With your help, the Dolores Huerta Foundation will educate and mobilize these voters!  Proceeds from this timely event will enable much-needed expansion and acceleration of the important work of the Foundation’s Integrated Voter Engagement (IVE) project.

Since 2003, the Dolores Huerta Foundation [a 501(c)3] has been organizing at the grassroots level to develop natural leaders as community organizers, establish Vecinos Unidos (United Neighbors) chapters, and inspire communities to build volunteer organizations empowered to pursue social justice.

IVE enables them to engage and educate underserved prospective voters in their own neighborhoods through a variety of tactics, including door-to-door canvassing, phone banking, texting, social media, and public forums.  With your support, they will leverage the organizing framework they have already built by implementing IVE in Arvin, Lamont, Bakersfield, California City, Lindsay, Woodlake, Sanger and Parlier.

We believe you will leave this event understanding that the Central Valley is on the move and that you can help accelerate their progress!

Please share this invitation with your family, friends and employers.

Program

5:30 to 8:30 PM

Panel Discussion (with audience participation)

National and state leaders have abdicated their roles, so local leaders are taking on the challenges.  Central Valley community leaders discuss the region’s evolving political landscape. Our goal is to elevate their solutions.  

Fred Ross, Jr., Moderator (Community Organizer and Son of Fred Ross, Sr.)

Camila Chavez, Executive Director, Dolores Huerta Foundation

Pam Whalen, Organizing Director, Dolores Huerta Foundation

Governor Brown Declares April 10th Dolores Huerta Day in California!

Governor Brown Declares April 10th Dolores Huerta Day in California!

Today, Wednesday, July 18, 2018, Governor Jerry Brown signed Assembly Bill 2644, designating April 10th as Dolores Huerta Day. The bill was introduced by Assemblymember Eloise Reyes (AD-47). Civil rights leader and community organizer, Dolores Huerta, is the first and only living person to hold this honor.

Dolores Huerta Day is not a state holiday. Instead, this day is designated day to recognize Dolores’s lifelong work as a civil rights activist and community organizer, her role as the co-founder and vice president of the United Farm Workers union, and her current work as president and founder of the Dolores Huerta Foundation.  The state law encourages schools to teach their students about Dolores Huerta and her life. 

“I’m happy to hear that our young learners will have the opportunity to learn more about social justice and civil rights because there is still a lot of work to do. We have low-income communities with inequitable representation in local education. At the same time, they are facing tough anti-immigrant and racist rhetoric. This is all happening right in front of our faces. We need to continue organizing to empower communities so that they can fight for fair representation, voting rights, and an equitable education. This is how we are going to change the future for human rights and a fair and just society for all,” commented Dolores Huerta, President & Founder of the Dolores Huerta Foundation.

“I believe this is a fitting recognition for someone who has dedicated her life to empowering others and perfectly timed to uplift communities who are struggling to hold onto their basic human rights,” adds Camila Chavez, Executive Director of the Dolores Huerta Foundation.

Event: 14th Annual DHF Celebrity Golf Classic 2018, Fri. 10/5/18

Dear Friend,

We cordially invite you to our 14th Annual Dolores Huerta Foundation Celebrity Golf Classic on Friday, October 5, 2018 at The Links at RiverLakes Ranch in Bakersfield, California.  Please join us as a golfer, sponsor, and/or donor for our most treasured annual event. Celebrities who have attended in the past include Benjamin Bratt, Rosario Dawson, Dennis Leoni, Jay Montalvo, Jose Solano, Eva Longoria, George Lopez, Esai Morales and sports celebrities such as Kenneth Landreaux and Ruben Castillo.

DHF mobilizes at the grassroots level engaging the community and developing leaders to work for positive change. Your donation will help fund our education, health and safety, equality, and civic engagement projects. This past year we were successful in making electoral voting districts more fair and representative. Our South Kern organizers delivered more than three trucks of donated clothing to needy families. Our civic engagement team is currently working to put an initiative on the ballot that would bring in more resources for schools and communities.  DHF has recently enjoyed a great deal of attention and gained more support, due to the release of “DOLORES,” the critically acclaimed documentary film, produced by Carlos Santana and directed by Peter Bratt, about the life and work of DHF Founder and President, Dolores Huerta.

Now more than ever DHF is being sought to organize, unite, and address the challenges facing our communities. We sincerely hope you can join us in supporting these efforts. If you are unable to attend, you can also assist by purchasing a sponsorship. Please see the attached sponsorship opportunities to select your preferred option.

Additionally, you may donate items for our raffle and golf prizes. Donations of sports gear and memorabilia, gift certificates, and promotional items branded with your company/team logo are welcome. All donations are tax deductible.

Please share this event with your employers, family and friends.

Event: California State Assembly Proposes Bill to Designate April 10th as Dolores Huerta Day, 4/12/18

Event: California State Assembly Proposes Bill to Designate April 10th as Dolores Huerta Day, 4/12/18

On Thursday, April 12, 2018, members of the California State Assembly, Eloise Gomez Reyes (D-San Bernardino) and Rob Bonta (D-Oakland), will be hosting a reception at the State Capitol honoring Dolores Huerta and her lifelong commitment to justice and civil rights. The ceremony comes in light of Dolores Huerta’s recent 88th birthday on April 10 and Assemblywoman Eloise Reyes’s Assembly Bill 2644 proposing to designate April 10 as Dolores Huerta Day.

Dolores will be honored on the assembly floor followed by a few words from Dolores herself and a reception with family, friends, and members of the Martin Luther King Jr. Freedom Center to commemorate this major feat.

Dolores Huerta Day will not be a state holiday, but instead, a designated day to recognize Dolores and the labor and civil rights movements she dedicates her life to. If the bill passes, schools will be encouraged to teach their students about Dolores Huerta and her life.

“I’m happy to hear that our young learners will have the opportunity to learn more about social justice and civil rights because there is still a lot of work to do by the Dolores Huerta Foundation. We have low-income communities with inequitable representation in local education, and at the same time, they are facing tough anti-immigrant and racist rhetoric, all happening right in front of our faces. We need to continue organizing to empower communities so that they can fight for their representation, voting rights, and an equitable education to change the future for a fair and just society and human rights for all,” comments Dolores Huerta, President & Founder of the Dolores Huerta Foundation.

“I believe this is a fitting recognition for someone who has dedicated her life to empowering others,” adds Camila Chavez, Executive Director of the Dolores Huerta Foundation.
