Friends of Farmworkers improves the living and working conditions of vulnerable low-wage farmworkers, mushroom workers, landscaping workers, and food processing workers in Pennsylvania. We do this through the provision of Legal Services, Education, and Advocacy.
We advance our mission by providing free legal representation on employment-related issues to eligible Pennsylvania workers. We also provide community education on legal rights for migrant and immigrant workers throughout the Commonwealth.
We serve communities of workers that include workers in industries that rely heavily on temporary seasonal foreign guestworkers brought in under H-2B visas (“H-2B workers”), who often return to work for the same Pennsylvania employers year after year. We also provide legal assistance to income eligible worker organizations.
For over 30 years, FOF has provided direct legal assistance to thousands of individuals and improved the living and working conditions of a much larger number through advocacy and impact litigation, including representation of groups of workers and class action litigation.
