Mexico City, Mexico - August 3

Day Three - 3rd New Defender Training

The final day of the 3rd New Defender Training began with a presentation on the work of the organization and the structure and function of the Global Workers Defender Network. This was our opportunity to secure the defenders' commitment to join, reiterate the importance of the network model for achieving portable justice, and further fuel their enthusiasm for the work.

Day Two - 3rd New Defender Training

On this second day, Defenders were once again treated to a guest trainer, Matt Adams from the Northwest Immigrant Rights Project, who conducted the module on Immigration. This was by far the most popular amongst the advocates, which only highlights the urgency of this issue at a transnational level.

2nd Defender Forum – Inaugural event

Global Workers conducted its first training on U.S. employment laws in 2008. As we expanded in Guatemala and Mexico we held a second training in 2010. Now that we are growing into additional states in Mexico, it becomes that much more important to prepare our existing network within Mexico for this growth, and discuss with them what this means for increasing efforts in the country to combat transnational worker exploitation.
