Posted on 4/21/2015 1:16:59 PM

Stephanie Dorenbosch, staff attorney of Friends of Farmworkers (FOF), will give a presentation titled “The Invisible People in Our Society.” Her presentation will be held on Wednesday, April 22, in Room 247 of Johnson Hall from 6:00–7:00 p.m.

Dorenbosch joined Friends of Farmworkers in 2011 as a fellow funded by Harvard Law School and became an official member of the team as a staff attorney in 2012. In addition to her casework, she advocates for the fair treatment of farmworkers as a member of several groups in Philadelphia working to improve our regional food systems. Dorenbosch will begin holding regular office hours in a health clinic as part of a new medical-legal partnership between FOF and Puentes de Salud in summer 2015.

At Harvard Law, Dorenbosch interned with an immigration law clinic in New Orleans and with the ACLU of Maryland, serving impoverished clients through clinical courses in death penalty defense, predatory lending, and criminal defense. She served on the editorial boards of the Harvard Civil Rights-Civil Liberties Journal and Unbound: Harvard’s Journal of the Legal Left.

Her presentation will address exploitation and marginalization, discrimination and “othering,” physical and psychological abuse, linguistic and cultural challenges, and the lack of political representation among farmworkers.
