Donate to Farmworker & Landscaper Advocacy Project -Ayuda para Trabajadores-

Dear family and friends of the low-income workers, As the growing season slows down, many of the workers we serve will not be out in fields. Instead, they will be clearing snow and ice, while FLAP continues its mission on a daily basis increasing awareness of its legal programs and services among Illinois-based immigrants, seasonal, and migrant workers. As of today FLAP has filed 192 cases and sent 65 demand letters, totaling almost 3.9 million dollars in back wages and damages for immigrant workers. This year, in addition to filing and settling cases for unpaid overtime and work off-the-clock on behalf of low income workers, FLAP is working towards settlement of lawsuits that involve hundreds of workers who will receive a monetary benefit for uniform and tool deductions they experienced during the course of their employment. FLAP is working hard to continue and expand its services; the staff and attorneys we partner with are working on preparing several new cases for filing and are looking to close out 2017 with success! Why is FLAP’s mission, to improve working conditions, so important? Low-income workers represented by FLAP are subject to many violations in the workplace, which include nonpayment of wages, unauthorized wage deductions, illegal pesticide exposure, hazardous housing, unsanitary and dangerous working conditions, discrimination, and workplace injuries. Although the potential violations are numerous, there is a true lack of awareness on the part of our client base regarding their rights at work, their access to representation, and their options. We depend on people like you to make charitable, tax-deductible donations to help bring a brighter future to the workers who put food on our table. Please join us in the fight against wage theft, human labor trafficking and other unfair and illegal employment practices! We need your support this holiday season, more than ever!  Please help the FLAP 
carry on  its  mission by  making an online tax deductible donation using the form below and clicking on the donate button.

If you prefer to write a check, please make the check payable to FLAP and mail the check to:

FLAP 33 N. LaSalle Street Suite 900 Chicago, IL 60602

Thanks for your invaluable support!
