My name is Francisco Abendano and I was raised in Madera, CA. In December of 2020, I graduated from CSU Fresno with a B.A. degree in Chicano Studies. I am happy to be the first college graduate in my family. As the son of immigrant farmworkers, I understand how crucial it is to help underserved populations access important resources. I am very excited to join the California Farmworker Foundation team and look forward to supporting the mission to empower our farm-working communities.
