For more than
forty years, the Migrant Legal Action Program (MLAP) has provided
legal representation and a national voice for migrant and seasonal
farmworkers, the poorest group of working people in the United States.
MLAP works to
enforce rights and to improve public policies affecting farmworkers'
working and housing conditions, education, health, nutrition, and
general welfare. The program works with an extensive network of
local service providers.
MLAP staff is
actively involved in a variety of advocacy, including legislative
and administrative representation. MLAP also provides extensive
support to local migrant service providers through training, technical
assistance, and other services.
