Health & Environment

Health & Environment

The Dolores Huerta Foundation works to create healthy environments where people can live, work, and play. We understand health and environment as intrinsically linked. As such, we train community residents to advocate for parks, adequate public transportation, infrastructure improvements, the reduction of pesticide use, increased recreational opportunities, and culturally relevant services.

DHF partners with environmental organizations and agencies to educate residents on environmental hazards and safe green alternatives.  We understand that for individuals to thrive, they need to be equipped with tools to make healthy dietary and behavioral decisions.
