New FWU staff: Lindsey Moore

My name is Lindsey and I am Legal Aid's new Human Trafficking Initiative Paralegal. I came to Legal Aid with experience working as a family defense advocate in Bronx, New York and as a Translator and English teacher in Santiago, Chile.  I grew up in North Carolina and after time away I’m excited to get back to fighting for my community and issues important here at home. I hope that my work on our team will help to improve our service to clients and better meet the needs of victims and their families.
Thank you for reading our newsletter, and please stay in touch with us.

Remember that our staff is available for presentations. If your organization would like to learn more about farmworker rights in North Carolina, give us a call.

Have a great 2017!
