Sanger and Parlier Vecinos Unidos® Distribute Food and Increase 2020 Census Count

In triple digit heat in mid-June, the Sanger and Parlier Vecinos Unidos distributed over 200 boxes of food to families in need. They are addressing a food insecurity situation afflicting the Central Valley’s most vulnerable communities as a direct result of the Coronavirus pandemic.

The Vecinos Unidos also assisted over 40 families in self reporting for the 2020 Census, on site. They distributed information encouraging the other families receiving food to get counted.

Over all DHF Vecinos Unidos have distributed over 23,000 pounds of food in Lindsay, Raisin City, Carruthers, Parlier, Lake LA, Lamont, Arvin and Bakersfield. Boxes contain essential food items and basic staples including canned goods, potatoes, tuna, chicken, milk, beans green beans and soups.

In addition, Vecinos Unidos have assisted more than 300 families in completing the 2020 Census and have educated many others on the importance of getting every member of their families and communities counted.

Parlier Vecinos Unidos® are Down With the Count!

On February 29th, Parlier Vecinos Unidos canvassed their neighborhoods in an effort to educate and encourage “hard-to-count” community members to complete the 2020 Census. Family members of all ages joined together to ensure everyone in their community is counted before the April 1st deadline.

We encourage you to participate by joining the Vecinos Unidos canvassing efforts and/or making sure each one of your friends and family members gets counted. Help educate our communities about census information centers, census confidentiality and new options for completing the census over the phone, online, and at local kiosks! It has never been easier to BE DOWN WITH THE COUNT!

New Vecinos Chapter in Sanger, CA 8/10/17

On August 10, ninety community members gathered at the Sanger Community Center to form the newest chapter of the Vecinos  Unidos (Neighbors United.)

The community meeting in Sanger was the result of a campaign of 20 house meetings. DHF Organizer Stephanie Canales met with small groups of friends and neighbors to discuss issues of concern in Sanger.

Executive Director, Camila Chavez and President Dolores Huerta, gave a presentation demonstrating how through these local groups DHF has been able to mobilize community members in low-income neighborhoods to transform their communities by winning huge policy and electoral victories in the areas of infrastructure, education, healthcare, and civic engagement.

Among the improvements that the group plans to work on are creating more social and cultural activities, expanding employment opportunities, and increasing services such as drug rehab and mental health services.

Long -time community activist Willie Lopez attended the event and seemed hopeful. He commented, “The meeting was very successful. Now we need to move quickly to take action on the issues that we have identified”.

The newly formed education and civic engagement committees are already actively engaging the Sanger City Council and Sanger School District to pursue their collective priorities.
