Jaritza Velasco was born and raised in Delano, Ca. She achieved a bachelor’s in Criminal Justice from the California University of Bakersfield. She comes from a family that migrated from Mexico and El Salvador to the United States to provide a better living. Her parents have worked in agriculture for more than 20 years and have seen how hard they work to put food on our table. It is a pleasure working for a foundation that gives back to the community and helps farmworkers across California.
