Cabrera’s company, Florezca, in which undocumented workers are shareholders so that they might be protected by the legal status of a corporate entity. Last fall, Cotton Circles, involved students, faculty, staff and community volunteers at California State Univ. in Fresno in a collaborative, outdoor weaving project using traditional Oaxacan looms.
