Guillermo Moreno, Outreach 

Service to the community is my passion. Born and raised in the Valley, educated at San Joaquin Memorial High School, Fresno is my home. I decided to return after college and law school because I am dedicated to every hard-working Central Valley native. I dedicated my life to serving low-income seniors and will continue to do so.

Agricultural workers are the backbone of our economy. We are and should always be the agricultural capital of the world. My family has a history in working on the west side of the Valley. My grandfather Pete woke up at 3 AM every day because he always wanted to beat the sun. I am honored to join CAAL and lead an organization that represents our bountiful, fertile land.
