Established in 2003, the DHF’s mission is to inspire and organize communities to establish volunteer organizations empowered to pursue social justice. DHF conducts movement-building at the intersection of race, class, sexual orientation, and socio-economic status to address the harmful and discriminatory practices and abuses faced by marginalized individuals and families in the San Joaquin Valley. The DHF uses a multi-pronged approach – grassroots organizing, advocacy, leadership development, and a public relations strategy to inform narrative change.
COVID-19 Response: The Dolores Huerta Foundation is currently working remotely in response to the COVID-19 Pandemic. Our highest priority is to ensure our employees, their families and community members are safe. Once we return to office, positions will be based in the following counties: Kern, Fresno, Tulare or Antelope Valley with the ability/occasional expectation to travel to each.
