United Farm Workers co-founder Dolores Huerta would like to see California’s Native American tribes offer in-person sports betting at their casinos.
Huerta threw her support behind the Tribal Sports Wagering Act in an announcement Wednesday.
The Tribal Sports Wagering Act will appear on the November ballot. If passed, tribal casinos and certain horse racetracks will be able to offer in-person sports betting. The casinos would also gain access to roulette and dice games such as craps.
“Latino and Indigenous communities have a deeply intertwined history of oppression and being treated as second-class citizens in California,” Huerta said in a statement.
