About the organization
The Farmworker and Landscaper Advocacy Project (FLAP) provides legal representation to the thousands of landscapers, migrant and seasonal farmworkers who work planting and harvesting crops, detasseling corn, and cultivating nursery products.
The vast majority of these migrants are Spanish speakers who migrate to Illinois from Texas or Mexico for 6-9 months. The primary focus is on migrants living in Northern Illinois. The FLAP represents farmworkers and landscapers, regardless of their immigration status, in disputes over wages and working conditions.
