Global Workers approach in identifying potential partners is to make contact with organizations that have legal departments and outreach capacity. A legal department is necessary because the advocates will be assisting in labor cases originating in the USA, identifying new cases, providing direct legal services for issues that arise locally related to the migration, and to continually identify bigger picture legal and legislative challenges to portable justice that must be addressed. Outreach capability is equally important.
