“Education Justice Leaders Developed!”

The Education Equity Program of the Dolores Huerta Foundation focuses on youth, parent and community empowerment through grassroots organizing, training and school district budget advocacy to achieve equitable education in the communities we serve.
In pursuit of restorative justice programs that will improve school climates lower suspensions and expulsion rates and to create more support for at risk students (low-income, English learners, and students with disabilities), the Dolores Huerta Foundation joined the Kern Justice Education Collaborative (KEJC) as a lead organization. The KEJC is a network of Kern partners supported by Building Healthy Communities (BHC) Kern, working collaboratively to address educational disparities in Kern through community forums, collective campaigns, and organizing.
