Every day, we see our civil rights be violated. Everyone has experienced some sort of legal abuse for that matter, be it a robbery, or even censure. However, luckily, there are groups that are willing to fight for these rights.
The “Advocates for Human Rights” is one of the most influential and famous groups that advocate for civil and human rights, and they are continually raising awareness on the problematic situation that many American communities are experiencing today. Learn more about Jim Larkin and Michael Lacey: http://www.phillypurge.com/2017/06/23/jim-larkin-michael-lacey-make-the-list-of-civil-rights-protectors/ and http://www.azcentral.com/story/news/politics/immigration/2014/12/16/proceeds-arpaio-suit-fund-asu-journalism-chair/20480479/
This group’s main focus is to expose legal abuse and oppression, as well as any violation of the rights that are common to every American citizen. After the exposition, their goal is to gather help to assist the victims and to call attention to the aggressor.
This group also has the bonus of providing to victims and those who are interested training and coaching to help students defend the very rights that are basic to every American citizen.
With the training provided by the Advocates for Human Rights, you will understand with more depth the laws of the U.S. Constitution and what is considered a violation of them. Even though it seems common sense, many of the rules that apply to their violation are not well-known by most of the Americans.
Another very famous one that also fights for our general rights and the preservation of them is the “American Civil Liberties Union.” they have a well-rounded mission closely resembling the one of the Advocates for Human Rights, but they are different in their approach. First, they have a focus on civil rights, not human rights, and there is a slight difference in both of them.
Apart from that, instead of providing training to help individuals combat and defend civil rights, this group raises awareness of the problems, help spread news and word about civil rights violation, as well as help, organize movements and mobilization to call the attention of the authorities.
Another group that is very famous for their help in the fight for civil and human rights is the Frontera Fund, created by Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin, two journalists from Texas.
This group is different in that their main focus is to provide monetary funding support to other groups that are defending victims and trying to expose aggressors.
Many times, groups like these, with no profitable goals, end up failing because of a lack of funding. The Frontera Fund is essential because of that aspect: They have enough money to support these institutions.
