When discussing human rights, civil rights, and migrant rights, there are many different perspectives on which is right and which is wrong. Everyone is absolutely entitled to their own opinion, but some feel as if their opinions don’t matter. That is what these special organizations are for, to speak up for those who feel like minorities don’t have say to their own rights.

A special group designed to help those in need is, The Advocates for Human Rights! They try to implement human right standards and promote a civil society that must enforce those rules.
Some of the programs that this organization is interested in serving or has served in the past are, Women’s Human Rights, International Justice, Immigrant Rights, and Human Rights Research. The purpose of helping all these individual groups is so they all can individually seek freedom and justice. Read more: Phoenix New Times | Wikipedia and Michael Lacey | Facebook
Many things have been changing with laws and health insurance policies due to our new president. He’s caused a lot of stress and fear because people are losing their rights to stay in The United States where they have been for ages!
Not only that, but there is a huge protest going on between sports teams and our president. A selective amount of athletes have started a trend of kneeling down during the National Anthem. The president was not fond of this and said they needed to be fired if it continued.
If we were to get technical, it’s not a crime to kneel during the National Anthem and it is a peaceful protest. Athletes of color feel as if they still don’t have the basic human and civil rights as other individuals. Until this issue can be resolved, there will be many more peaceful protests that continue onward.
Another popular organization known for funding money towards migrant rights, is the Lacey and Larkin Frontera Fund. The money they use to fund migrant rights is money they received from a settlement back in 2007. The two co-founders were taken from their homes and placed in jail for revealing confidential information.
Just like any other rights movement organization, Lacey and Larkin wanted to make an impact, a change for the better. Some minority groups can’t do it all on their own, and that’s when these two heroic men stepped up to the plate. They wanted to see better justice, better freedom, and a better quality of life for individuals!
