California Rural Legal Assistance Foundation

ADVOCATES FOR JUSTICE

WHO WE ARE

Rooted in the farm worker movement of the 1960s 

California Rural Legal Assistance Foundation

is a privately funded rural justice center focused

on serving farm workers and low-wage rural workers, regardless of their immigration status.

 

We believe justice and dignity

do not begin or end at a border crossing,

but are inalienable human rights.  

HOW WE WORK

INFLUENCE

Political power is essential to finding long-term solutions to the problems farm workers and other low-wage laborers face. CRLAF is a trusted and respected voice representing low-income rural communities. 

 

EMPOWER

For 35+ years CRLAF has built a reputation as a trusted resource for farm workers and rural families. Empowering our communities to advocate is critical to developing long-term solutions. 

ADVOCATE

To protect the rights of low-wage workers representing large groups is the key to bringing about industry-wide improvements. By representing low-wage workers in class action litigation, CRLAF has achieved sweeping reforms in wage and hour, sexual harassment, and worker safety matters.
