South Carolina Workshop On Women And Hispanic Lawsuit  Against USDA

Workshop Is For South Carolina Potential Claimants
Friday, February 8, 2013 in Orangeburg, South Carolina from 10:00AM - 3:00PM

ATLANTA...The Federation of Southern Cooperatives/Land Assistance Fund will host a workshop on Friday, February 8, 2013 at 10AM in Orangeburg, SC at the 1890 Extension Building to explain the qualifications claimants have to meet to participate in the "Women and Hispanic Discrimination Lawsuit" against the USDA, which is now in the late stages of the claim process and to assist claimants with their claim forms. The claims process for this lawsuit ends on March 25, 2013, which gives potential claimants less than 90 days to file.

Women and Hispanic Lawsuit Workshop
In the Auditorium
South Carolina State University * 810 Golf Avenue
1890 Extension - Senator John W. Matthews Building * Orangeburg SC 29117
On Friday, February 8 - From 10:00AM -3:00PM

The workshop will explain who qualifies for the lawsuit and what requirements must be met in order to submit a claim form and receive a cash award.  "Our intent is to provide as much detailed information as possible to assist women farmers with the claims process," said John Zippert with the Federation of Southern Cooperatives.  One of the requirements to participate in this lawsuit is that Women and Hispanic farmers had to have experienced USDA discrimination between the years of 1981-1996, or October 13, 1998-October 13, 2000.

There will be additional information offered at the workshop about the claims process and the claim form itself.  Women and Hispanic farmers are encouraged to attend this informational session and learn the facts concerning the women's discrimination lawsuit against the USDA on February 8, 2013.
