2021 Fall WMNL: DHF Youth Honor Dia de los Muertos and the LGBTQI+ Community

2021 Fall WMNL: DHF Youth Honor Dia de los Muertos and the LGBTQI+ Community

Utilice el botón “Translate” en la esquina inferior derecha para traducir estos artículos al español.

This year DHF LYFE & Livin’ LYFE Youth Program members participated in Arte Americas Día de los Muertos or Day of the Dead celebration in Fresno, California (with a limited showcase and COVID-19 safety precautions in place.) DHF Youth Organizers form their curriculum with a critical lens on history and intersectionality. Youth members  created an altar of hand painted frames to honor and feature the 49 individuals that were lost at Pulse Nightclub, in Orlando, Florida on June 12, 2016, in a mass shooting targeting the LGBTQI+ community. It was  named one of the deadliest incidents in the history of violence against queer people in the United States. Hate has no place in this world, we extend our hearts to the families affected and to the folks who continue to battle being themselves in today’s world.

The youth not only learned about the tragedy of that night, but the personal stories and the light these  individuals shined on the world  while they were with us. They joined the frames of couples that died that night together w/ a bracelet to signify their everlasting love. 

The youth want to educate their peers and uninformed adults that the LGBTQI+ community has a rich history and life stories of love, joy and courage. This ofrenda  provided the community with a piece that demonstrated  the passion, beauty, diversity, and the love in the lives of the 49 victims prior to the events at the Pulse Nightclub Latin Night. They wanted to show how many positive experiences of the LGBTQI+ Hispanic community are found through dance, poetry and creation of safe havens.

Need a reason to celebrate? DHF has got you! DHF staff, volunteers, Vecinos Unidos® members, and partner organizations, with the help of our generous donors and supporters from around the world, were able to secure significant legislative wins. This is what People Power looks like! 

SB 380 End Of Life Options Act – This is a major step forward in respect for patient autonomy and relief of suffering for terminally ill Californians. It reduces the mandatory minimum 15-day waiting period between the two oral requests for aid-in-dying medication to 48 hours for all eligible patients.

SB 721 California Farmworker Day – Establishes a day to honor California’s’s roughly 800,000 farmworkers – essential workers – who play a vital role in maintaining our food supply and whose work is more critical than ever during the pandemic.

SB 393 Farmworker Access to Childcare Act –  Directs resources to the Migrant Child Care Alternative Payment Program so that such workers can gain access to child care in any county in the state of California.

SB 497 Direct Deposits to Qualifying Accounts, Overdraft Features – Closes a loophole that allows non-bank prepaid card companies to evade California laws that prohibit overdraft fees on prepaid cards used to receive public assistance, unemployment compensation, and/or state distributed child support payments.

SB 81 Judicial Guidelines for Sentence Enhancements – Establishes guidance when a California judge is deciding whether to dismiss an enhancement (policies that mandate that people who are convicted of criminalized behaviors while engaging in generally non-criminalized behaviors—such as being in a school zone—or having generally non-criminalized traits—such as having a prior conviction—receive longer and surer sentences) by requiring judges to give “great weight” to evidence that proves certain mitigating circumstances, such as: The underlying conviction is not a violent felony.

SB 224 Pupil Instruction Mental Health Education – Requires each Californiaschool district, county office of education, state special school, and charter school that offers one or more courses in health education to pupils in middle school or high school to include course instruction on mental health.

AB 1096 Removing “Alien” from State Law – Removes the word ‘alien’ from California laws when referring to noncitizens

SB 757 Home weatherization for Low Income – Creates better transparency in the solar energy systems sales process and enhances California consumer protection.

SB 62 Garment Worker Protection – Prohibits the practice of piece-rate compensation for garment manufacturing in California, except in the case of worksites covered by a valid collective bargaining agreement.  Furthermore, garment manufacturers who contract with another person for the performance of garment manufacturing would be required to jointly and individually share civil liability for all workers in that other person’s employ.

AB 796 CA Motor Voter Program – Will help create a more representative democracy and ensure that California’s  DMV’s voter registration process is efficient, fair, and secure.

None of this work is possible without supporters like you, so please take a moment to celebrate our collective wins and know that we are grateful for all you do to strengthen our community. 

2021 Fall WMNL: DHF Youth Honor Dia de los Muertos and the LGBTQI+ Community

2021 Fall WMNL: The Fight for Fair Maps!

Utilice el botón “Translate” en la esquina inferior derecha para traducir estos artículos al español.

Creating fair district lines is a critical tool our communities have to reclaim their voting power. For many communities of color throughout the nation, historical gerrymandering allows their elected representatives to choose their voters in their district, rather than allowing the voters to elect their representatives in fair and lawful elections. This practice of gerrymandering has disenfranchised underrepresented communities and diluted their voting power. Our communities are standing up and demanding that county officials adhere to the process as outlined in the Federal Fair Maps Act. Community leaders like Tammy Tyler refuse to be shut out of the process and are working to make sure that the voice of her community is not only heard, but that their involvement leads to concrete changes. For Tammy, redrawing the district lines is personal. “A lot is at stake for the community of California City, California,” Tammy states, “The system has failed the black and brown communities for so long that we have lost faith and it made us believe that we have lost power.” Tammy says that all changed when she met DHF Organizer Carol Watkins. It was then that she “woke up” and took her power back empowered with tools and knowledge she gained through a series of educational redistricting workshops. According to Tammy, “We don’t even have a hospital here. Our roads are bumpy when the ones in the white neighborhoods are nice and smooth.” She understands the lack of resources and funding for communities of color is rooted in racist practices that our communities work to dismantle. 

California City is not alone. The DHF plans to continue addressing redistricting issues in the Central & Antelope Valleys in partnership with community leaders and other organizations that make up the Equitable Maps Coalition (EMC). Using Geographic Information System (GIS) technology, DHF is working to create maps that display newly proposed boundaries. GIS mapping makes the data visible and easier to comprehend the social inequities in Central Valley communities. With your support, DHF has been able to mobilize folks in the Central Valley and support leaders like Rubi Colmenares, one of many community members who have collectively submitted hours of comments and feedback at board of supervisor meetings. Rubi shared, “I felt good, because I had the opportunity to express what I had in mind and I was being heard.” “It was so beautiful to hear from every community in Kern to come to a universal agreement, especially in the most misrepresented and underserved communities,” said Gabriela Fernandez, DHF Youth Program Manager.

DHF has faced strong opposition in Fresno and Tulare as in Kern County, and the fight for equitable representation is just starting. Each area has gained a tremendous amount of support for the EMC maps. Over 1,200 people signed petitions in agreement that these maps presented the best options for fair representation. Vecinos Unidos® member, Mirna Elvir says, “It was a very important moment for me being able to express myself to the people who have power to resolve the different problems that communities have, especially the community of Lamont.”On December 4, 2021 DHF joined forces with the Service Employees International Union (SEIU) 521, Central California Coalition for Equitable Redistricting (CCCER), Services, Immigrant Rights & Education Network (SIREN), Center on Race, Poverty & the Environment (CRPE) Central Valley Leadership Round Table (CVLRT), Cultiva de Salud, Central Valley Progressive PAC, Central Labor Council (CLC), Communities for a New California (CNC), Strength Based Community Change (SBCC) and Central Valley Partnership to lead a “Redistricting March for Our Future” in Fresno, California. Hundreds of supporters took to the streets to urge  Redistricting Commissions to adhere to the redistricting criteria and ensure that community voices are heard. We marched in solidarity to demand fair maps, improved public services, and more COVID rescue funds for our Central Valley communities. Join us in DEMANDING redistricting commissions to adopt an equitable map at assembly, senate and congressional levels. Demand that your elected representatives know where you are located and what is important to you and those in your community by giving public comments at your local redistricting hearings.

Letter from the Executive Director

Dear DHF Family,
The last two years have been trying. While we have all faced loss and grief, we also came together in ways that inspired us all. You’ll find reasons throughout this newsletter, to celebrate Vecinos Unidos®, youth and most of all, PEOPLE POWER! Our Vecinos Unidos® members, youth and greater community secured legislative wins that we can all be proud of. You’ll learn about the herculean efforts we are collectively making with our partner organizations to ensure that the voices of historically disenfranchised communities are centered through the redistricting process. I hope you, like me, will also be inspired by the ways our youth continue to lead with their hearts. I wish you all a season filled with love for justice and joy in all that can be achieved when people are empowered to pursue social justice!
¡Si Se Puede!
Camila Chavez

Redistricting March for Our Future 12/4

Redistricting March for Our Future 12/4

Dolores Huerta Foundation (DHF), Service Employees International Union (SEIU) 521, Central California Coalition for Equitable Redistricting (CCCER), Services, Immigrant Rights & Education Network (SIREN), Center on Race, Poverty & the Environment (CRPE) Central Valley Leadership Round Table (CVLRT), Cultiva de Salud, Central Valley Progressive PAC, Central Labor Council (CLC), Communities for a New California (CNC), Strength Based Community Change (SBCC) and Central Valley Partnership marched to demand for fair representation, fair funding, and fair resources. Please join us in these efforts as the #Fight4FairMaps is not over! Demand that the Board of Supervisors choose equity for all communities. Don’t let them divide us!

DOLORES HUERTA FOUNDATION DEMANDS ADHERENCE TO REDISTRICTING CRITERIA IN THE CENTRAL VALLEY

DOLORES HUERTA FOUNDATION DEMANDS ADHERENCE TO REDISTRICTING CRITERIA IN THE CENTRAL VALLEY

In August the Census Bureau released data based on the 2020 Census. The U.S. Census Bureau provides all 50 states population counts to use in their redrawing of congressional and state legisla­tive district boundaries. This process of redistricting is not an optional or suggested process, but rather a legally mandated one that advocates have come together to urge California Redistricting Commissions to adhere to. Dolores Huerta Foundation Executive Director, Camila Chavez stated, “The recently released census data confirms what we’ve known to be the case for years. Our communities are increasingly made up of a rich diversity of constituents and the majority of current elected officials representing them simply are not reflective of the communities they are responsible for representing. The redistricting process as required by law, is one that should result in equitable representation and that’s exactly what our communities are working for.

Community and labor groups have joined together in the Central Valley to ensure a fair and equitable map is adopted by the County Board of Supervisors for Redistricting. This process began in January of 2021 and included the voices of hundreds of community members. All County Board of Supervisors redistricted maps must adhere to the Federal Fair Maps Act, include community input, and consider communities of interest. DHF in solidarity with our partners, is demanding that counties in our region adhere to the redistricting process and adopt the map submitted by EMC, which is supported by community member input. We are urging officials to respect and acknowledge the NEW data for each district and stop their efforts to silence the voices of communities of color.

On Thursday, December 2, 2021 The Dolores Huerta Foundation (DHF), Service Employees International Union (SEIU) 521, Central California Coalition for Equitable Redistricting (CCCER), Services, Immigrant Rights & Education Network (SIREN), Center on Race, Poverty & the Environment (CRPE) Central Valley Leadership Round Table (CVLRT), and Central Valley Partnership will be hosting a press conference on at 11:00 am at Liberty Bell (In front of the Kern County Superior Court), urging Kern County to adhere to the redistricting criteria and ensure that community voices are heard.

Additionally, we invite the public to “March for Our Future” on Saturday, December 4, 2021 as we continue our fight for fair maps at a state level in the Central Valley. Dozens of community groups and allies from Kern, Tulare, Kings, Antelope Valley and Fresno counties will come together to demand fair maps, improved public services, and more COVID rescue funds for our Central Valley communities. We will begin at 11:00 am in front of Arte Americas, 1630 Van ness Ave., Fresno and end with a rally at Courthouse Park, Courthouse Park 1100 Van Ness Ave., Fresno at 12:00 pm. Our future depends on fair lines, fair funding and fair treatment for all. For more information about the Redistricting March, “March for Our Future,” please call (559) 420-0648 for more information. Learn more about the Dolores Huerta Foundation at www.doloreshuerta.org.

The Fight for Equitable & Inclusive Maps Continues

The Fight for Equitable & Inclusive Maps Continues

The Dolores Huerta Foundation, in partnership with community leaders and other organizations, has come together to form the Equitable Maps Coalition and have painstakingly created Equitable Maps and districts that comply with the Voting Rights Act.

Through your support, the Dolores Huerta Foundation has been able to mobilize folks in the Central Valley to provide public comments at countless Board of Supervisors Redistricting meetings, target hard to hit communities through door-to-door canvassing, and educate folks at key community events to ensure that everyone understands what is at stake for the next ten years. The Kern Equitable Map Coalition came out in force to fight for fair maps.

Dozens of community members gave comments whereas meetings lasted for over 2 hours! It was so beautiful to hear from every community in Kern to come to a universal agreement, especially in the most misrepresented and underserved communities. Meanwhile, in the Fresno and Tulare county redistricting hearings, some of the same hard-right reactionaries challenged the EMC community map. DHF, partnering organizations and concerned community members fought an uphill battle as some misinformed right-winged individuals, unfortunately, mistook these maps to have a hidden agenda, when they are in fact well within the Voting Rights Act law. Additionally, each area has gained tremendous community support for the EMC maps.

The Dolores Huerta Foundation Vecinos Unidos® chapter members are actively engaging in the crucial redistricting process on all governmental levels including at their local school districts. The Education committee, a sub-focus group founded through the Vecinos Unidos®, have provided 15 board comments to Parlier Unified School District and Bakersfield City Schools district asking for a transparent, community-led process. Vecinos Unidos® continue to meet on a weekly basis to discuss their community needs and shape a map that will provide equitable representation.

Lastly, we’d like to thank each of you for your continued support! We invite you to join us in DEMANDING redistricting commissions to adopt equitable maps at assembly, senate & congressional levels. Demand that your elected representatives know where your community is and what is important to you and those in your community by giving public comments at your local redistricting hearing. For more information, please contact Eliana at ehoneycutt@doloreshuerta.org or visit www.wedrawthelinesca.org

The Pandemic is not over, We must continue to protect those most vulnerable!

The Pandemic is not over, We must continue to protect those most vulnerable!

The Dolores Huerta Foundation (DHF) Education Department alongside the support of the Vecinos Unidos® chapter members, continue to provide our most underserved communities the support they need to feel assured and safe from COVID-19. The pandemic highlighted a factor we’ve known all along, it is that Central Valley essential workers – farmworkers, janitors, grocery store employees – are on the front lines constantly risking their lives for us. They are often working outdoors in conditions of poor air quality, extreme heat, unsafe working conditions and are statistically most likely to be working alongside someone with COVID-19.

As a result, the Dolores Huerta Foundation staff makes it a priority to protect and empower these communities through every opportunity we possibly can. Most recently, DHF participated in seasonal community events throughout the Central Valley where they distributed information about the COVID-19 vaccines, provided masks, hand sanitizer, and further resources and information that may benefit their situation or of those they may know. These vulnerable professionals are not likely to receive PPE from employers therefore access to such can save lives. We are proud to announce that through DHF’s participation in these fun and safe county-wide events has offered over 1,200 families free resources to keep themselves and their loved ones safe.

Additionally, DHF is a proud partner within the United Against COVID-19 Coalition, where as we have helped organize 36 vaccine clinics throughout the Central Valley & Antelope Valley. Each vaccine clinic is strategically placed in the communities that have been hit the hardest by the pandemic and furthermore lack the accessibility to such resources to protect themselves from the deadly virus. A total of 3,600 people and counting have received their COVID-19 vaccine and are now proudly a part of the solution to end the pandemic.

Celebrating the adoption of Proclamation Recognizing LGBTQ+ Students, Staff and Community!

Celebrating the adoption of Proclamation Recognizing LGBTQ+ Students, Staff and Community!

The Dolores Huerta Foundation’s Education Department is celebrating LGBTQ History month this October by providing Vecinos Unidos® members and Youth online resources all month long. In early June 2021, Kern students of the LGBTQ+ community were harassed and intimidated by their peers. As a proactive measure to support LGBTQ+ youth, DHF has been hosting safe spaces for our youth and meeting with allies to make sure their voices are heard at school board meetings. Through our organizing efforts, on October 4th, 2021, the Kern High School District board Adopted a Proclamation Recognizing LGBTQ+ Students, Staff and Community. This is the first step in being inclusive of all identities and students, and we will continue to advocate for resources such as:

Hiring of LGBTQ+ BIPOC counselors, social workers, and therapists
Sustainability of an office/space where LGBTQ+ students can gather
Implementation of LGBTQ+ cultural competency training for educators and students
Hosting and Celebrating PRIDE events
Denouncing anti-LGBTQ+ behaviors and actions when students report them
AND holding restorative justice circles for healing and solution-making when behaviors/actions do occur
