The NLADA Farmworkers Law Section will meet with members of LSC to discuss updates in specialized funding as well as program expectations and other service delivery matters. LSC staff will report on: (1) a pending analysis by the Department of Labor Employment and Training Administration to update the estimate of the LSC-Eligible Agricultural Worker Population, and (2) the implications the updated estimate may have for FY2021 Basic Field and Agricultural Worker service area grant allocations. We will also review information regarding the section’s monthly meetings for project directors and the newly developed monthly training series for farmworker advocates. Further discussion will include best practices and ways to establish mentorship relationships within the farmworker advocacy community. Executive directors and litigation directors are especially encouraged to attend, in addition to staff providing legal services to the agricultural worker population.
