HVJC is pleased to announce The New York Bar Foundation has given a grant award in the amount of $6,000 to HVJC to support our Immigrant Worker’s Rights Project.

This grant will help HVJC to provide critical legal assistance to individuals and groups of low-wage immigrant workers throughout the lower and mid-Hudson Valley region including wage theft, illegal retaliation and discrimination, and labor trafficking.  Through partnership with the Westchester Labor Alliance and other grassroots community organizing groups, HVJC will continue to identify and pursue opportunities for impactfull enforcement of labor standards and combat labor abuses affecting vulnerable immigrant workers.
