Legal and Judicial Activism

The KC (Kern County) We Stand initiative will strengthen Kern County’s District 4 rural communities’ relationship with their representatives. Representatives would include their board of supervisors; congressional representatives; school district members; parent and student advocates. The reason is so constituents could see the active participation from their community and other communities in Kern County. In District 4, there lays many rural communities that have been forgotten because of their location. Although, this initiative will help these forgotten communities with knowledge on how representatives are serving them and how they could become more civically engaged. This would be done through the existing organization: Dolores Huerta Foundation
