The Centro de los Derechos del Migrante and Global Workers Justice Alliance, both MacArthur grantees, worked with the American University Washington College of Law to produce a 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. When workers win settlement funds in U.S. lawsuits challenging wage theft, discrimination, or human trafficking, advocates often face difficulty ensuring their clients receive the money once they have returned to Mexico. Banking differences between the two countries, global security concerns, and ethics considerations create hurdles in getting workers funds they are owed.
