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

  • Followed by a Special Screening of “DOLORES”, a documentary film about Dolores Huerta’s life as a community organizer and labor leader.

    This inspiring film presents an instructive view of her ongoing strategy for building leadership and empowering people.  More information is available here.

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.

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.
