Through a community organizing model, invented by Fred Ross Sr., DHF organizers mobilize rural, low income residents for social change. Organizers in each region will host monthly community forums, known as Juntas Generales, where folks receive leadership training, resources, legislative information and discuss community needs. Through their collective efforts and the tools provided by an organizer, a Vecinos Unidos® (United Neighbors) chapter is constructed. There are currently 13 active Vecinos Unidos® Chapters in Antelope Valley, Arvin, Bakersfield, California City, Caruthers, Greenfield, Mojave, Lamont, Lindsay, Parlier, Sanger, Tulare and Woodlake. Vecino Unidos® members actively engage with their elected officials on local governing and school district boards to advocate for progressive policies and reforms. Their people power helps them champion victories for their own communities.
