FLAP – Farmworker & Landscaper Advocacy Project

FLAP provides landscaper and farmworker legal services across Illinois.

    FLAP's Mission

    Join us for the Beckman Farmworker Advocate of the Year Award Luncheon at the Tap Room on July 24, 2017.

      The mission of the Farmworker and Landscaper Advocacy Project (FLAP)- Ayuda para Trabajadores- is to improve working conditions for migrant and seasonal workers in Illinois, including low-income farmworkers, landscapers, snow plowing workers,  packinghouse workers, cannery workers, and meat and poultry workers end their households.  FLAP carries out this mission through:

      Our clients are the thousands of individuals who travel to Illinois to harvest the different crops we eat, grow the plants that adorn our urban and suburban gardens, and maintain these landscapes. They are primarily men and women who have immigrated to this country from Latin America. They labor 10-12 hour days exposed to heatstroke, dehydration, pesticides, injury and hazardous working conditions.

      Migrant and seasonal workers in Illinois' agricultural and landscaping industries are one of the most marginalized group of workers in the nation. Despite their many contributions to our society these men and women are often victims of abuse. Employers, for example, refuse to pay them overtime, or any wages at all, for their hard work. Many of our clients also suffer injuries without receiving any compensation. Such abuses jeopardize the well-being of our clients, their families and their communities. FLAP specializes in recovering owed wages for these workers.
