Migrant Legal Aid

About Migrant Legal Aid

Migrant Legal Aid helps migrant farm workers stand up for their right to safe housing, safe working conditions, and their right to earn a fair wage. Migrant workers have struggled to maintain basic human dignity, from lack of bathroom facilities, dangers posed by pesticides, and discrimination. Because of their poverty, their transitory lifestyle, and their language difficulties, many face barriers to civil legal services. Out of this need, the legal community in Michigan formed Michigan Migrant Legal Assistance Project, also known as Migrant Legal Aid. Migrant Legal Aid provides an array of legal services to the migrant worker community.
