Our Roots Make Us Strong

Migrant Legal Aid is a nonprofit organization that has been advocating for migrant workers’ rights since 1973. Facing poverty, language barriers and discrimination, migrant workers often struggle to maintain basic human dignity. Through a myriad of programs and services, MLA stands up for the rights of workers to have proper housing, work under safe conditions, and earn a fair wage.  MLA serves as an advocate for legislation and policies that support Migrant and Seasonal Farmworkers. Furthermore, MLA conducts education and outreach to migrant labor camps to empower workers to be informed and help them avoid and reverse injustices.

Michigan Fair Food Project

The Michigan Fair Food Project is a partnership between Migrant Legal Aid, food producers, retailers, and employers for fair and ethical treatment of farmworkers. The partnership allows for active dispute resolution between everyone involved and timely resolution of emergent issues. As a signer of our pledge, we give you the right to use the Fair Foods Seal on your produce to show the public you are actively involved in the rights of these workers and interested in social justice.
