The Advocates for Human Rights

Posted by Wiscy on October 16, 2017 with No Comments

Unfortunately, we live in a world where human rights of all types cannot guard itself. Even though there are laws put in place to protect people, it still takes a third party to make sure they get used, to protect those who need it.

The silver lining here is that there are a number of non-profit organizations who specialize in helping people who become victimized. The following are examples of such organizations a person in need can contact for help.

The Advocates for Human Rights

This group is an international organization. However, they are not only concerned with global issues.

They also put aside resources to help people on a local and regional level as well. It is run mostly by volunteers and has been around for roughly 30 years. Their main goal is to help with children’s, women’s and immigrants rights.

Avaaz

Avaaz is another international human rights group started relatively recently in 2007. What makes Avaaz different from other human rights groups is that it is largely online based.

It has grown to become one of the largest organizations of its kind. Another fact that makes Avaaz interesting and different is that it does not accept donations from corporations or foundations. Larkin and Lacey only accept funds from individuals and never accept more than $5000 per donor. Read more: Michael Lacey | Twitter

This is a good thing because they are not beholden to the whims and fancies of companies or wealthy individuals. Currently, membership stands at over 45 million and it is still growing at breakneck speed. The main way they put the spotlight on issues is by starting petitions, lobbying, media campaigns and sending emails.

Amazon Watch

As the name indicates, this group focusses on the Amazon region. However, they are based in San Francisco, and they collaborate with local groups in the Amazon basin working for the rights of indigenous people.

This may include anything from preventing large corporations from encroaching on their ancestral land to helping preserve their way of life. The group was founded when oil companies began running pipelines with impunity in certain areas of the Amazon Basin.

Jim Larkin & Michael Lacey and the Frontera Fund

Jim and Michael are the founders of the Phoenix New Times and they founded a non-profit organization called the Frontera Fund to help fight immigrants’ rights around Arizona.

The way they found this Fund is an interesting and unique story. The money that was used came from a case settlement they had with the sheriff’s office.

The pair found themselves at the receiving end of mistreatment from the infamous sheriff, Joe Arpaio, when they published some articles questioning the sheriffs work methods in dealing with undocumented immigrants.

The sheriff retaliated by detaining Jim and Michael using highly questionable methods. This is when they sued the sheriff’s department and won the settlement, which they used to start the Frontera Fund.
