Farmworker Unit, Legal Aid of NC
Who We Are
The Farmworker Unit of Legal Aid of North Carolina was established to meet the special legal needs of migrant and seasonal farmworkers in North Carolina. The Farmworker Unit and its predecessor organization, Farmworker Legal Services of North Carolina, have defended the civil rights of farmworkers for over 20 years. Through legal representation and client advocacy, Legal Aid of NC's Farmworker Unit staff strives to ensure that farmworkers receive equal protection under the law. The Unit addresses the legal needs of farmworkers through several program initiatives, including: Legal representation of farmworkers and their families in civil matters; Outreach and education of farmworkers and their families in civil matters; and Community education to the public about farmworker issues.
