Please join us to honor our awardees and advance the vital advocacy, litigation and education of Farmworker Justice on immigration, labor, occupational safety, health and access to justice.

Farmworker Justice is proud to honor two awardees who have advanced the cause of farmworker justice.

U.S. Senator Richard Blumenthal of Connecticut for his ongoing efforts to address international labor recruitment abuses and human trafficking. With Sen. Blumenthal’s advocacy, the Senate’s comprehensive immigration bill last Congress included a program which, if passed by the House, would register and regulate international labor recruiters.

Andrea LaRue, Managing Partner of NVG, a government relations firm in Washington, D.C. for her contributions to advocacy on immigration policy for the benefit of farmworkers, their family members and their communities. Ms. LaRue, an attorney, has provided years of valuable pro bono representation to the United Farm Workers.
