Take Action

We hope After I Pick the Fruit will raise awareness about the need for humane immigration reform and inspire viewers to get involved in making that reform happen. To learn more about immigration reform and farmworker rights, here are some organizations that advocate for the human rights of immigrant workers and farmworkers.

America’s Voice

The Worker Justice Center of New York pursues justice for those denied human rights with a focus on agricultural and other low wage workers, through legal representation, community empowerment and advocacy for institutional change. The Worker Justice Center is the merger of Farmworker Legal Service of NY (FLSNY) and the Workers’ Rights Law Center (WRLC). The merger builds on decades of achievement in providing direct legal services low-wage workers, empowering communities, and advocating for institutional change. The Worker Justice Center continues the long history of FLSNY’s services to seasonal and migrant farm workers, while recognizing that more and more farm workers are entering other industries closely related to agricultural and other low-paying service work.
