Alternative Spring Break 2019

FSU Law students participated in our 11th annual Alternative Spring Break Program in 2019.

Students traveled to Apopka to assist migrant and seasonal farmworkers by working with the Farmworker Association of Florida. The program, which is coordinated by our Public Interest Law Center, is an opportunity for students to observe the challenges faced by this population and to receive training on conducting outreach and educating workers about their legal rights.

Student activities included working in nurseries, taking a "toxic tour" of Lake Apopka, talking with farmworkers, and learning about farmworker immigration issues, human and labor trafficking, the H2A guest worker program, pesticide exposure and heat stress.
