DHF Civic Engagement Amigo Thank You! DHF Civic Engagement Fundraiser, Tues. 10/9, 5:30pm
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 Foundation 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.
