The DHF was proud to partner in a successful Community Town Hall hosted by Kern County Supervisor, Leticia Perez, on the evening of February 5, 2015.
The line to register for the event spilled out the door of the David Head Center in Lamont. Every seat in the hall was filled. Elected officials, representatives from various organizations, and community leaders, including Dolores Huerta, shared crucial information with nearly 200 residents from the towns of Arvin and Lamont.
Speakers explained AB 60, the new law which will allow California residents, regardless of immigration status, to get driver licenses. The DMV had representatives on hand to answer specific questions.
Those in attendance learned how to protect themselves from fraud, specifically scams related to recent executive actions on immigration. In addition, people were given an opportunity to have free on-site consultations with immigration counselors and attorneys.
