Sexual violence against migrant workers is a persistent problem in the United States. Many victims suffer in silence. Several pivotal cases have surfaced over the past several years, underscoring the complex interaction of isolation, oppression, and poverty that many migrant workers face. Exploitation can take many forms — including economic, cultural, physical, legal, sexual, and others — all of which serve to continue and worsen the isolation and oppression of its victims. Being an undocumented worker can make worse this isolation and oppression even further. For more information, view our Technical Assistance Bulletin on Migrant Farm Workers.
