MIGRANT WORKER HANDBOOK OF COMMUNITY AIDES / MATERIAL DE ORIENTACION PARA TRABAJADORES DE LA COMUNIDAD

Washington, D.C. Migrant Legal Action Program, Inc., April 1974. Pressboard Binder. “The following materials have been prepared to better inform outreach workers in the field dealing with the legal problems facing migrants each year. Many of the migrant’s problems are recurring, but we often lack the information about existing laws that provide protection for the migrant and his family.” Includes sections on social security, public assistance, food stamps, education, immigration, etc. The Migrant Legal Action Program (MLAP) was created in 1970 to protect and better the rights, interests, and needs of migrant and seasonal farm workers within the United States; many of these laborers made up the poorest group in the country. In addition to providing legal assistance to migrant workers, the group is involved in policy development, public education and training, litigation support and backing, distribution of resource materials, and labor conditions lobbying. 316 p. with a parallel English and Spanish text. Photomechanically reproduced, and secured in a blue pressboard binder with a printed title label on the front panel. Some very light toning, with a bit of sun fading along the extremities of the binder; else very good. Scarce, OCLC locates only three copies (Cornell, Library of Michigan, Washington University). Very good. Item #68849
