Global Workers Defender Network

New from the Global Workers Justice Alliance (press release):
The Global Workers Defender Network is comprised of human rights organizations and individual advocates, in the migrant sending countries, who facilitate employment law cases for migrant workers in partnership with advocates in the countries of employment. The Defenders also identify cases of migrants who have suffered labor exploitation and educate migrants on their labor rights.
The Defender Network was launched in April 2008 in Chiapas, Mexico when the first group convened for an intensive training. Through the training program, the Defenders learned about U.S. employment-related law, human trafficking, U.S. civil procedure, and international law.

Currently, the Global Workers Defender Network is operational in Mexico and Guatemala. Over time, the Network will expand within Mexico and Guatemala as well as to additional countries.
