Alternative Spring Break 2022

Florida State University Law School, 2022

Fourteen law students share a transformative experience brought to you by The Farmworkers Association of Florida, one of our long standing partners. 


On March 11, 2022, fourteen Florida State University law students traveled to the Farmworker Association of Florida in Apopka. Alternative Spring Break is without fail a highlight of many students’ law school experience. A phrase repeated in all fourteen individual reflections was “life changing.” What makes the program so special? Four things set this trip apart: (1) the freedom from ignorance that comes from listening to the hard numbers and legislation in workshops, (2) sharing of intimate and powerful testimony, (3) hands-on work experience, and (4) deep bonding through conversation and reflection on difficult topics.
