Marco Antonio Abarca was born in Denver and raised in the Sloan’s Lake neighborhood. He attended Regis Jesuit High School and graduated from Yale College. His degree was in Latin American Studies with an emphasis in Cultural Anthropology. After a year of travel, Marco enrolled at Stanford Law School. His first job was with the Migrant Farmworker Unit of California Rural Legal Assistance. In 1992, he returned to Denver to help manage his family’s food processing business.
