Rob Williams Honored By the White House

In honor of Cesar Chavez Day 2012, the White House honored 10 leaders who, like Cesar Chavez, have dedicated themselves to improving the lives of others throughout their community and across the Nation. The Cesar Chavez Champions of Change were honored at a ceremony at the White House last month.  Among the honorees was Rob Williams of Florida Legal Services, Inc. From the White House Press release:

Rob Williams is the director of the Migrant Farmworker Justice Project. Established by Florida Legal Services in 1996 and funded by the Florida Bar Foundation, the Project's mission is to provide access to justice for the more than 150,000 farmworkers who live and work in Florida. Williams began his career as a legal services lawyer in Immokalee, Florida in 1975. For more than a decade he has represented the United Farm Workers in their campaign to enact the AgJOBS immigration reform legislation which would benefit the one million undocumented workers and their families who harvest America's crops. The Migrant Farmworker Justice Project also vigorously defends the rights of US workers and guest workers under the H-2A program, and has litigated dozens of cases in federal and state courts to enforce farmworkers' rights to fair wages and working conditions.

This is a tremendous honor for Rob and for the entire Florida civil legal services delivery system. We encourage everyone to read the text of Rob's remarks from the ceremony at the White House Blog. Entitled "Delivering on a Promise of Justice," the remarks are quite moving.

Legal services embodies two basic principles: fidelity to our clients, and commitment to our community which is bound together by our devotion to equal justice.
