Human Rights Watch Reports: Farmworkers suffer sex abuse to avoid deportation and job loss

Human Rights Watch/May 16, 2012

Human Rights Watch has released a report, "Cultivating Fear: The Vulnerability of Immigrant Farmworkers in the US to Sexual Violence and Sexual Harassment." The report, a summary, recommendations, and a video are at the Human Rights Watch website.

The report acknowledges the help of CRLA staff members in providing information for the key sections on indigenous farmworkers and farmworkers from the LGBT community. The groundbreaking efforts of CRLA staff and clients and our work to fight sexual harassment are featured throughout the report.
