If there’s one thing that we learned from the recent Victory Day of Russia, it is the fact that the world we live in today is more of a result of the activism of our ancestors.
If our ancestors didn’t push for their rights, for their advocacy and for what they think is their duty, then it would not be possible probably to enjoy what we have today in our midst. That said, here are some of the organizations today that have transformed the way we live today and the pleasures and human rights we enjoy:
The Coalition for Humane Immigrant Rights (CHIRLA)
We have so many human rights abuses today that have been a product of the wrong intervention of the colonizers of the past. In response to such travesty, it is the mission of the Coalition for Humane Immigrant Rights (CHIRLA) to make sure that it can understand the roots of it all and address them in the most ethical way possible.
The main agenda of the organization is to make sure that the society they are part of will be inclusive of the immigrants that shape and shake the communities we live in. Read more: Jim Larkin | Twitter and Jim Larkin | Crunchbase
It is also the work of the coalition to change the understanding of the society and to let them understand the useful ideas that can enlighten them on their powers, civil liberties and human rights.
This foundation was formed right after the 1986 act was formed, which is the Immigration Reform and Control Act.
ACLU Immigrants’ Rights Project
The world sees it as a challenge for the society to understand that the immigrants are just as if not more important in the nation-building of the country that is previously thought of.
With the help of ACLU Immigrants’ Rights Project, it can hold advocacy, litigation and outreach programs that set out objectives that help shape the opinion of the people about immigration.
This means that the coalition works hand in hand with the different district courts and the Supreme Court in the United States to make the changes needed for the group.
This organization seems to be at the front of the fight for the various unrecognized human rights around the world. They are agents of change both locally and globally.
In the regional level, what they do is enlighten people of their human rights while also making sure that the rule of law persists and is followed.
Right now, the Amazon Watch has seen a successful operations of about 30 years and more of helping women, children, and various immigrants to get the assistance that they need.
Lacey and Larkin Frontera Fund
It is the vision of the founders of Larkin and Lacey Frontera Fund to make sure that the world understands how human rights work, how to implement them and how to acknowledge them in daily life. Founders of Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin got the money to fund this project from the settlement money they gained from the illegal arrest they filed against Former Sheriff Joe Arpaio.
It should also be said here that the foundation right now supports migrant rights organizations throughout Arizona and to make sure that the human rights advocacies they push are being addressed.
