DOLORES HUERTA FOUNDATION IN PARTNERSHIP WITH HAZMAT TO HOST PRESS CONFERENCE AND COMMUNITY VIGIL ON THE ONE YEAR ANNIVERSARY OF THE JAN. 6TH CAPITOL RIOT

Who: Dolores Huerta Foundation along with HAZMAT America and local Bakersfield, CA activists 
When: TOMORROW, Thursday, Jan 6, 4-6pm PT
Where: 4100 Empire Dr, Bakersfield, CA 93309, right outside Kevin McCarthy’s office
What: Press Conference followed by a community vigil to CALL OUT Kevin McCarthy and DEMAND accountability, as part of the nationwide January 6 Vigil for Democracy Day of Action. The day will start with a press conference outside McCarthy’s office featuring the Sedition Petition billboard truck to make our message heard all across McCarthy’s district. Mobilize link here.

Masks and social distancing will be required. DHF encourages only those fully vaccinated to attend. January 6 was a violent and deadly attack against all Americans – against our country, our democracy, and our freedom as voters to choose the leaders that represent us so that we have a government of, by, and for the people. One year later, the same faction that attacked our country on January 6th is hard at work silencing our voices by restricting our freedom to vote, attacking fair voting districts, and quietly preparing future attempts to sabotage free and fair elections and with it our democracy.

This January 6, exactly one year later, Americans across race, place, party, and background are holding candlelight vigils to say: In America, the voters decide the outcome of elections. The promise of democracy is not a partisan issue but a calling that unites us as Americans. To prevent this kind of attack from happening again, our elected leaders must pass urgent legislation that will protect this country from anti-democratic forces who are continuing their efforts to destroy it. Coming together, we can prevent another January 6th attack and realize the promise of democracy for all of us – no matter our color, zip code, or income – so we all have an equal say in the decisions that shape our daily lives and futures.

National Healthcare Decisions Day with Dolores Huerta

“(This is an opportunity to) determine what kind of care we want, whether we want life-extending measures depending on our condition, and who will speak for us in case we get a life-threatening illness and cannot communicate our wishes for end of life care,” Huerta says in the video. “This is a great opportunity for us to reach out to our loved ones and start having those difficult but necessary conversations about advanced care planning.”

DHF Vecinos Unidos, Voluntarios, Partidarios y Personal están trabajando arduamente para asegurarse de que todos los votantes elegibles estén registrados, tengan toda la información que necesitan y un plan para votar en las elecciones generales. ¡Esta puede ser la elección más importante de nuestras vidas! ¡Únase a nosotros en DEFENDIENDO LA DEMOCRACIA y haciendo una gran diferencia este noviembre!

La votación es importante. Dolores Huerta dice: “¡El día de las elecciones es el día más importante de tu vida!” y “Deberías votar como si tu vida dependiera de ello, ¡porque así es!” ¡HAGA CLIC AQUÍ PARA RAZONES SÓLIDAS PARA VOTAR!

¡¡¡Por qué TIENES que VOTAR !!!

¡¡¡Por qué TIENES que VOTAR !!!

La elección de este año va más allá de quién será presidente. Su voto es su voz en temas que afectan la vivienda, la educación, el empleo y la atención médica.

Ayude a hacer una diferencia en su comunidad durante estas elecciones generales y únase a nosotros para defender nuestra democracia.

Aquí hay algunas razones por las que debe registrarse y votar:

  1. Las elecciones tienen consecuencias.
    Tiene el poder de decidir la calidad de vida que desea para usted y las generaciones futuras. Votar es su oportunidad de defender los problemas que le interesan, como el transporte público, el aumento del salario mínimo o la financiación de las escuelas locales. Esta es tu vida: tómate el tiempo para ayudar a decidir qué es lo mejor.

  2. No votar es renunciar a la voz.
    Las elecciones las decide la gente que sale a votar. Tómese su tiempo para conocer las medidas y los candidatos. Si no vota, otra persona tomará la decisión por usted. Tu poder está en tu voto.

  3. Es tu dinero.
    Paga impuestos, pero ¿sabe cómo se utiliza ese dinero? La mayoría de la gente no lo hace. La votación es su oportunidad de elegir cómo se gastan los dólares de sus impuestos, como los fondos para la atención médica y los servicios sociales.

  4. Votar es una oportunidad de cambio.
    ¿Quieres generar un impacto positivo? ¡Votar te da esa oportunidad! Apoye a los candidatos y las medidas electorales que pueden ayudar a su comunidad, estado e incluso a la nación para un bien mayor. Haga oír su voz en estas elecciones.

  5. ¡La comunidad depende de ti!
    Nuestras comunidades están formadas por amigos, seres queridos, vecinos y niños. Es posible que algunos no sepan lo importante que es votar, mientras que otros no tienen el privilegio. Tome la decisión de votar por usted mismo y los que le rodean.

Asegúrese de que se escuche su voz – VOTAR

¡¡¡Por qué TIENES que VOTAR !!!

Why you HAVE to VOTE!!!

This year’s election goes beyond who will be president. Your vote is your voice on issues affecting housing, education, employment and healthcare.

Help make a difference in your community during this general election and join us in defending our democracy.

Here are just a few reasons why you should get registered and vote: 

1. Elections have consequences.

You have the power to decide on the quality of life you want for yourself and future generations. Voting is your chance to stand up for the issues you care about like public transportation, raising minimum wage, or funding local schools. This is your life: take the time to help decide what’s best.
 

2. Not voting is giving up your voice.

Elections are decided by the people who go out and vote. Take some time and learn about the measures and the candidates. If you don’t vote, someone else will make the decision for you. Your power is in your vote.
 

3. It’s your money.

You pay taxes, but do you know how that money is being used? Most people don’t. Voting is your chance to choose how your tax dollars are spent – such as funding for health care and social services. 
 

4. Voting is an opportunity for change.

Do you want to make a positive impact? Voting gives you that chance! Support the candidates and ballot measures that can help your community, state, and even the nation for the greater good. Make your voice heard in these elections. 
 

5. The community depends on you!

Our communities are made up of friends, loved ones, neighbors, and children. Some may not know how important voting is, while others don’t have the privilege. Make the decision to vote for yourself and those around you. 

Make sure your voice is heard – VOTE
