In Loving Memory of Vincent Beckman III
Dear Friends, It is with a heavy heart and sadness that we inform you of the passing of Attorney Vincent Beckman III, co-founder of the Farmworker and Landscaper Advocacy Project - FLAP. Vincent lived a full life of service to his beloved farm workers, seasonal workers and Latino Immigrants. We were so fortunate to have known him and will forever be grateful for all that he achieved and the impact he had on the Latino Immigrant communities FLAP serves. Vince will live on through the hearts and minds of the people he touched and through FLAP. He will forever remain in our hearts and we will continue carrying out his vision.
