After some time in development and consultations with the Global Workers Defender Network, we produced this new guide por the public based on our internal "Manual para Defensores de La Red de Defensores para Trabajadores Globales: Defendiendo los derechos de los migrantes transnacionales en los EEUU" ("Handbook for Advocates of the Global Workers Defender Network: Defending the rights of transnational migrants in the U.S.").
This guide is for advocates and human rights defenders outside our Defender Network that work with migrants in the Mexico -Central America region. It provides basic information about U.S. laws affecting transnational migrant workers and contextualizes the task of achieving "portable justice".
American University Washington College of Law, Centro de los Derechos del Migrante (CDM), and Global Workers Justice Alliance release the second edition of Money Transfers to Mexico, a manual designed to help migrant worker advocates navigate the transfer of funds to their clients in Mexico. The new edition of the manual provides updated information, including concrete tips and examples to help advocates send settlement funds to their clients in Mexico and facilitate portable justice.
Money Transfers to Mexico: A Manual Examining the Transfer of Funds from U.S. Advocates to Clients in Mexico is a comprehensive overview of the practical, legal, and ethical aspects of sending client funds to Mexico. The report is a collaborative effort of American University Washington College of Law’s Immigrant Justice Clinic, Centro de los Derechos del Migrante, and Global Workers Justice Alliance.
Practice manual for U.S. advocates representing clients who have left the United States. It was first published in 2008 for the National Farmworker Conference and was updated and reissued in 2010 and again in 2012. The redacted version is currently available for download below.
