“Inspiring and organizing communities to build volunteer organizations empowered to pursue social justice.”

As a 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to inspiring and mobilizing communities, our mission is to cultivate empowered volunteer organizations actively pursuing social justice. Our grassroots organizing efforts in Civic Engagement, Education Equity, Health, and Safety, and LGBTQIA+ Equality aim to amplify the voices of those most directly affected by inequity, recognizing their inherent knowledge and capacity to implement community-driven solutions when equipped with the necessary tools, training, and resources.


Our movement-building addresses the harmful and discriminatory practices and abuses faced by marginalized individuals and families. Through a multi-pronged approach, we’ve been instrumental in grassroots organizing for local and state legislation.

Our Vision Statement

In 5 years, DHF will be a national leader in training and developing organizers and organizations.  In the Central Valley, DHF Vecinos Unidos will be a powerful example of what is possible through community organizing by growing its member Vecinos Unidos chapters and volunteer members.  Nationally, DHF will establish a broad dues-paying membership base of 50,000 Vecinos, youth, donors, supporters, and voters creating an annual income of $1.25 million.  The Dolores Huerta Organizing Leadership Academy, DHOLA, will develop the curriculums and materials to train thousands of organizers nationally using multiple creative venues.   And finally, DHF will construct a campus that can house the organization, DHOLA, a Dolores Huerta archive, and serve as a location for retreats and social functions. This will be made possible by a committed, well-trained and fully staffed DHF with the resources to focus on creative ideas, the use of new technologies, and strategic planning and results management.
