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

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.

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