The Peace & Justice Cultural Center will be a multicultural community center complex, covering an entire city block in downtown Bakersfield, which will draw tourists and revitalize small businesses in the area. The Dolores Huerta Foundation has chosen to locate the Peace and Justice cultural center in downtown Bakersfield.

In addition to serving as the headquarters for the Dolores Huerta Foundation, the Peace & Justice Cultural Center will include:

– A Youth center for empowerment and leadership development programs

– A preschool for early childhood development integrating parent empowerment

– A cultural center honoring those who contributed to the rich history and economy of the Central Valley (Native Americans, Dust Bowl settlers, Arabs, Chinese, Japanese, African Americans, Filipinos and Latinos)

– An Auditorium and outdoor event center for cultural & community events as well as meeting spaces for local organizations

– And the Dolores Huerta Foundation offices and the Dolores Huerta Organizing Leadership Academy

“We are excited about building a permanent home for DHF as well as other non-profit organizational activities. We will expand our programming and increase the number of people we serve.”

– Camila Chavez

Executive Director of the Dolores Huerta Foundation
