Northwest Justice Project Farmworker Unit

“The Farmworker Unit, centered in Yakima, provides advocacy and individual legal representation to farmworkers and their families to ensure that they are afforded a full range of legal protections. Our advocacy focuses on workplace health and safety, sexual harassment and employment discrimination, wage theft, enforcement of protections within the H-2A temporary worker program, combatting human trafficking, and equal access to state and federal programs. Our attorneys and community worker visit labor camps and farmworker housing throughout the state of Washington to talk with workers about their legal rights and the resources available to them. The Farmworker Unit provides legal advice, legal representation, and community education.

Who qualifies for help? Low-income individuals who work in any branch of agriculture (including dairies, food processing, and beef plants) and their families.”
