Abigail Harrison - Media Specialist

Media Specialist

Hello! I was born and raised on the Central Coast, and settled in Fresno in 2017.

Dedicated to amplifying the voices of marginalized communities through media, I am committed to driving awareness and fostering understanding on a daily basis. As a storyteller, my mission is simple: to serve as a conduit for narratives that deserve to be heard, ensuring they are shared with the utmost dignity, compassion, and focus.

Culture is the thread that connects us all, weaving together our unique experiences and perspectives. Through the sharing of cultural practices, stories, and understandings, we deepen our connections to both the world and our communities. With a degree in Anthropology, I’ve come to appreciate that true expertise in culture lies not within academic studies but within the lived experiences of those who embody their culture every day.

Diego Espinoza - Community Outreach Coordinator

Community Outreach Coordinator (He/Him/His) Lios Enchi Ania

Hello everyone. My name is Diego Espinoza and I am the Community Outreach Coordinator at FAIHP. I love serving my community and working alongside so many great people. I studied American Indian studies at Fresno City College, and try to be as involved as much as possible in our community. My hobbies include playing and writing heavy metal music (Guitar and Bass Guitar), cooking, attending concerts, and reading a lot. I grew up for the most part here in Fresno/Clovis, but have also lived in Los Angeles, Santa Maria, and the Foothills (Auberry). I am of Yoeme (Yaqui) and of Purepecha descendance, as well as Costa Rican and Nicaraguan on my mothers side. It is a pleasure being here with all of you.
