May 03, 2023

ABC30 anchor Graciela Moreno was honored Monday afternoon in Sacramento with the Latino Spirit Award for her achievements in journalism and media. Moreno, an Emmy Award-winning journalist at ABC's Fresno affiliate, was one of eleven Latino pioneers recognized during the California Latino Legislative Group's 21st annual Latino Spirit Awards at the State Capitol. Moreno was escorted by Assemblymembers Esmeralda Soria, D-Merced, and Liz Ortega, D-Bayward. The daughter of migrant farmworkers, Moreno grew up in Newman. Moreno pursued higher education despite her father demanding that she not go to college, becoming a role model for many young Latinas.
