Groups that form and advocate for human and civil rights have been in existence for as long as anyone can remember. Migrant rights groups, likewise, have been around for awhile as well.
But what with the current controversy over immigration and citizen migration now causing concerns on a global scale, teamed with the ease and exposure that the internet now provides people worldwide, there is undoubtedly more of these advocacy groups in existence than ever before.
This is of course great news to those who wish to learn more about these groups and perhaps donate money or volunteer their time. Learn more about Michael Lacey: http://www.laceyandlarkinfronterafund.org/about-lacey-larkin-frontera-fund/
People interested in learning more about these advocacy groups simply need to make a quick inquiry into an internet search engine. Within moments, they will have access to seemingly countless pages of advocacy group listings, covering a wide variety of worthy causes and movements, both nationally, as well as just about every other country on earth.
In the national front, migrant issues along the U.S. southern border with Mexico has been a hugely polarized issue recently. One organization, the Lacey & Larkin Frontera Fund, is addressing civil, human, and migrant rights throughout the state of Arizona, all the way to the Mexican border.
Co-founders Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin established this fund with settlement money obtained from a bogus arrest of them in October 2007. Winning their lawsuit against Maricopa County, they’ve dedicated their $3.75 million settlement to advocating for these rights, as well as promoting freedom of speech and civil participation in this region.
For individuals interested in learning more about migrants’ rights on a more global scale, and to perhaps get involved or donate, one great site to check out is the National Network for Immigrant and Refugee Rights (nnirr.org).
Over 20 years ago, NNIRR was a founding member of Migrants Rights International (MRI), and strives to play a vital and active role in international migrants’ rights organizing and advocacy. Accessing their website enables visitors to learn a great deal more about their programs and issues, while providing continuous updates on program progress and upcoming concerns in a wide variety of different issues of concern.
Advocates for human rights should look at The Advocates for Human Rights website (theadvocatesforhumanrights.org).
Working on a local, national, and international scale, this organization, founded in 1983, is a non-partisan, non-profit organization.
Another site with comprehensive information, they greatly appreciate and are in need of donors, volunteers, and interns and staff members.
