ARVIN’S VETERANS HALL WILL BE A COVID VACCINATION SITE. This is crucial as the surrounding communities often house essential agricultural workers.
Gavin Newsom reported via @cagovernor Instagram, “We’re taking steps to get #COVID19 vaccines to the hardest-hit communities. With a partnership with OptumServe & counties, we’re opening up to 11 vaccine sites, like here in Arvin. We are also increasing supply by 58% to the Central Valley & allocating 34k doses to farmworkers.”
We are excited to announce the launch of our capital campaign to build the Dolores Huerta Peace & Justice Cultural Center, a multicultural community center complex in downtown Bakersfield, California. DHF will construct a state-of-the-art campus and headquarters that will include a comprehensive child development facility, art gallery, outdoor amphitheater and a community organizing training academy.The campus will provide a permanent location in Kern County to honor the historic civil rights legacy of local leaders, the contributions of the many immigrants who worked the land and enriched the culture and built California’s agricultural economy.
Please consider donating to make Dolores Huerta’s vision a reality!
