Migrant Legal Action Program

Washington, D.C.


For more than forty five 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.
