Jim Schmidt Fellowship

Files & media

The Jim Schmidt Fellowship is in honor of the remarkable Jim Schmidt who served as the long time Executive Director of Farmworker Legal Services (Now Worker Justice Center of New York) Jim famously said: “All workers are workers” Jim was known for nurturing advocates, grass-roots people, lawyers and organizers to work for systemic change. We seek to continue Jim’s work and vision through partnership with the Working Together Group of western New York. The six month long Fellowship is open to high school students from farm-working families who want to learn about organizing and change.
