CRLAF is a statewide non-profit organization providing legal services and policy advocacy for California’s rural poor. We focus on some of the most marginalized communities: the unrepresented, the unorganized and the undocumented. We engage in impact litigation, community education and outreach, legislative and administrative advocacy, and public policy leadership on the state and local levels in the areas of labor, housing, education, health, worker safety, pesticides, citizenship, immigration, and environmental justice. We seek to bring social justice to rural poor communities throughout California.
