You may register and pay online through our website by clicking the donate buttons above, or mail your payment to the address below. Please make checks payable to Dolores Huerta Foundation and mail to: Oakland Civic Engagement Fundraiser, Dolores Huerta Foundation, P.O. Box 2087, Bakersfield, CA 93303. All tax deductible donations go to support the civic engagement work of the Dolores Huerta Foundation. TAX ID #91-2145992

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 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.

We believe you will leave this event understanding that the Central Valley is on the move and that you can help accelerate their progress!

Please share this invitation with your family, friends and employers.

Program

5:30 to 8:30 PM

Panel Discussion (with audience participation)

National and state leaders have abdicated their roles, so local leaders are taking on the challenges.  Central Valley community leaders discuss the region’s evolving political landscape. Our goal is to elevate their solutions.  

Fred Ross, Jr., Moderator (Community Organizer and Son of Fred Ross, Sr.)

Camila Chavez, Executive Director, Dolores Huerta Foundation

Pam Whalen, Organizing Director, Dolores Huerta Foundation

Timoteo Prado, South Kern Organizer, Dolores Huerta Foundation

  • Followed by a Special Screening of “DOLORES”, a documentary film about Dolores Huerta’s life as a community organizer and labor leader.

    This inspiring film presents an instructive view of her ongoing strategy for building leadership and empowering people.  More information is available here.

Governor Brown Declares April 10th Dolores Huerta Day in California!

Governor Brown Declares April 10th Dolores Huerta Day in California!

Today, Wednesday, July 18, 2018, Governor Jerry Brown signed Assembly Bill 2644, designating April 10th as Dolores Huerta Day. The bill was introduced by Assemblymember Eloise Reyes (AD-47). Civil rights leader and community organizer, Dolores Huerta, is the first and only living person to hold this honor.

Dolores Huerta Day is not a state holiday. Instead, this day is designated day to recognize Dolores’s lifelong work as a civil rights activist and community organizer, her role as the co-founder and vice president of the United Farm Workers union, and her current work as president and founder of the Dolores Huerta Foundation.  The state law encourages schools to teach their students about Dolores Huerta and her life. 

“I’m happy to hear that our young learners will have the opportunity to learn more about social justice and civil rights because there is still a lot of work to do. We have low-income communities with inequitable representation in local education. At the same time, they are facing tough anti-immigrant and racist rhetoric. This is all happening right in front of our faces. We need to continue organizing to empower communities so that they can fight for fair representation, voting rights, and an equitable education. This is how we are going to change the future for human rights and a fair and just society for all,” commented Dolores Huerta, President & Founder of the Dolores Huerta Foundation.

“I believe this is a fitting recognition for someone who has dedicated her life to empowering others and perfectly timed to uplift communities who are struggling to hold onto their basic human rights,” adds Camila Chavez, Executive Director of the Dolores Huerta Foundation.

We cordially invite you to our 14th Annual Dolores Huerta Foundation Celebrity Golf Classic on Friday, October 5, 2018 at The Links at RiverLakes Ranch in Bakersfield, California.  Please join us as a golfer, sponsor, and/or donor for our most treasured annual event. Celebrities who have attended in the past include Benjamin Bratt, Rosario Dawson, Dennis Leoni, Jay Montalvo, Jose Solano, Eva Longoria, George Lopez, Esai Morales and sports celebrities such as Kenneth Landreaux and Ruben Castillo.

DHF mobilizes at the grassroots level engaging the community and developing leaders to work for positive change. Your donation will help fund our education, health and safety, equality, and civic engagement projects. This past year we were successful in making electoral voting districts more fair and representative. Our South Kern organizers delivered more than three trucks of donated clothing to needy families. Our civic engagement team is currently working to put an initiative on the ballot that would bring in more resources for schools and communities.  DHF has recently enjoyed a great deal of attention and gained more support, due to the release of “DOLORES,” the critically acclaimed documentary film, produced by Carlos Santana and directed by Peter Bratt, about the life and work of DHF Founder and President, Dolores Huerta.

Now more than ever DHF is being sought to organize, unite, and address the challenges facing our communities. We sincerely hope you can join us in supporting these efforts. If you are unable to attend, you can also assist by purchasing a sponsorship. Please see the attached sponsorship opportunities to select your preferred option.

Additionally, you may donate items for our raffle and golf prizes. Donations of sports gear and memorabilia, gift certificates, and promotional items branded with your company/team logo are welcome. All donations are tax deductible.

Event: California State Assembly Proposes Bill to Designate April 10th as Dolores Huerta Day, 4/12/18

Event: California State Assembly Proposes Bill to Designate April 10th as Dolores Huerta Day, 4/12/18

On Thursday, April 12, 2018, members of the California State Assembly, Eloise Gomez Reyes (D-San Bernardino) and Rob Bonta (D-Oakland), will be hosting a reception at the State Capitol honoring Dolores Huerta and her lifelong commitment to justice and civil rights. The ceremony comes in light of Dolores Huerta’s recent 88th birthday on April 10 and Assemblywoman Eloise Reyes’s Assembly Bill 2644 proposing to designate April 10 as Dolores Huerta Day.

Dolores will be honored on the assembly floor followed by a few words from Dolores herself and a reception with family, friends, and members of the Martin Luther King Jr. Freedom Center to commemorate this major feat.

Dolores Huerta Day will not be a state holiday, but instead, a designated day to recognize Dolores and the labor and civil rights movements she dedicates her life to. If the bill passes, schools will be encouraged to teach their students about Dolores Huerta and her life.

“I’m happy to hear that our young learners will have the opportunity to learn more about social justice and civil rights because there is still a lot of work to do by the Dolores Huerta Foundation. We have low-income communities with inequitable representation in local education, and at the same time, they are facing tough anti-immigrant and racist rhetoric, all happening right in front of our faces. We need to continue organizing to empower communities so that they can fight for their representation, voting rights, and an equitable education to change the future for a fair and just society and human rights for all,” comments Dolores Huerta, President & Founder of the Dolores Huerta Foundation.

“I believe this is a fitting recognition for someone who has dedicated her life to empowering others,” adds Camila Chavez, Executive Director of the Dolores Huerta Foundation.

About the Film

One of the most important, yet least known activists of our time, Dolores Huerta was an equal partner in founding the first farm workers union with César Chávez. Tirelessly leading the fight for racial and labor justice, Huerta evolved into one of the most defiant feminists of the 20th century — and she continues the fight to this day, in her late 80s. With unprecedented access to this intensely private mother of 11, Peter Bratt’s film Dolores chronicles Huerta’s life from her childhood in Stockton, California to her early years with the United Farm Workers, from her work with the headline-making grape boycott launched in 1965 to her role in the feminist movement of the ’70s, to her continued work as a fearless activist.

Featuring interviews with Gloria Steinem, Luis Valdez, Angela Davis, her children and more, Dolores is an intimate and inspiring portrait of a passionate champion of the oppressed and an indomitable woman willing to accept the personal sacrifices involved in committing one’s life to social change.


The Filmmaker

Peter Bratt is an award-winning screenwriter and independent filmmaker whose first feature Follow Me Home, premiered in competition at the 1996 Sundance Film Festival, and won the Best Feature Film Audience Award that same year at the San Francisco International Film Festival. In 2009, he and his brother Benjamin produced La Mission, a feature film shot on location in their hometown of San Francisco. The film, which Peter wrote and directed, premiered at the 2009 Sundance Film Festival and was the opening night film at the 2009 San Francisco International Film Festival, the 2009 New York International Latino Film Festival and the 2009 Outfest Film Festival in Los Angeles. For his work on La Mission, Bratt received the prestigious Norman Lear Writer’s Award and was one of 10 American independent filmmakers selected by Sundance and the President’s Committee on Arts and Humanities to launch Sundance Film Forward, a program that uses film and conversation to excite and introduce a new generation to the power of story. Bratt is a San Francisco Film Commissioner and a longtime consultant for the Friendship House Association of American Indians, a local non-profit serving the Bay Area’s Native population.

We believe that Women’s Rights are Human Rights and Human Rights are Women’s Rights. We must create a society in which women – including Black women, Native women, poor women, immigrant women, disabled women, Muslim women, lesbian queer and trans women – are free and able to care for and nurture their families, however they are formed, in safe and healthy environments free from structural impediments.

ENDING VIOLENCE

Women deserve to live full and healthy lives, free of all forms of violence against our bodies. We believe in accountability and justice in cases of police brutality and ending racial profiling and targeting of communities of color. It is our moral imperative to dismantle the gender and racial inequities within the criminal justice system.

REPRODUCTIVE RIGHTS

We believe in Reproductive Freedom. We do not accept any federal, state or local rollbacks, cuts or restrictions on our ability to access quality reproductive healthcare services, birth control, HIV/AIDS care and prevention, or medically accurate sexuality education. This means open access to safe, legal, affordable abortion and birth control for all people, regardless of income, location or education.

LGBTQIA RIGHTS

We firmly declare that LGBTQIA Rights are Human Rights and that it is our obligation to uplift, expand and protect the rights of our gay, lesbian, bi, queer, trans or gender non-conforming brothers, sisters and siblings. We must have the power to control our bodies and be free from gender norms, expectations and stereotypes.

WORKER’S RIGHTS

We believe in an economy powered by transparency, accountability, security and equity. All women should be paid equitably, with access to affordable childcare, sick days, healthcare, paid family leave, and healthy work environments. All workers – including domestic and farm workers, undocumented and migrant workers – must have the right to organize and fight for a living minimum wage.

CIVIL RIGHTS

We believe Civil Rights are our birthright, including voting rights, freedom to worship without fear of intimidation or harassment, freedom of speech, and protections for all citizens regardless of race, gender, age or disability. We believe it is time for an all-inclusive Equal Rights Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.

DISABILITY RIGHTS

We believe that all women’s issues are issues faced by women with disabilities and Deaf women. As mothers, sisters, daughters, and contributing members of this great nation, we seek to break barriers to access, inclusion, independence, and the full enjoyment of citizenship at home and around the world. We strive to be fully included in and contribute to all aspects of American life, economy, and culture.

IMMIGRANT RIGHTS

Rooted in the promise of America’s call for huddled masses yearning to breathe free, we believe in immigrant and refugee rights regardless of status or country of origin.  We believe migration is a human right and that no human being is illegal.

ENVIRONMENTAL JUSTICE

We believe that every person and every community in our nation has the right to clean water, clean air, and access to and enjoyment of public lands. We believe that our environment and our climate must be protected, and that our land and natural resources cannot be exploited for corporate gain or greed – especially at the risk of public safety and health.
