There many philanthropic groups that have been formed in the 21st century. This is as a result of the abuse of human, immigrants, civil rights and freedom of expression rising to higher levels. With the high level of innovation in the technology department, there is a lot of interaction globally. The world has been compressed into one village.
Transactions take place online. Dating happens online. Everything is possible online. People travel to different countries, to access what they can’t achieve through the internet. More than 200 million people in the world are living as immigrants.
This shifting has led to abuse of immigrant rights. Some states have denied the immigrants even the fundamental human rights. This has led to suffering and open public humiliation of immigrants. Most countries have denied the immigrants a chance to participate in decision making of the country.
This is what has triggered the formation of humanitarian groups. Their role is to balance the state and ensure that everyone gets justice regardless of their race, color, social status or any other factors. Some of this groups include;
Lacey and Larkin Frontera Fund
The Lacey and Larkin Frontera Fund was formed by the two owners of ‘’The Phoenix New Times”. Throughout their career, they have been involved in fighting for their rights.
Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin formed the Frontera Fund with the $3.75 million that they acquired as comprehension from the case of the sheriff.
The two journalists wrote the story of the malicious deals that the sheriff had tolerated in the society. He arrested them from their homes at midnight and took them to an unknown location. The civilians protested, and he released them within 24 hours.
When they went to court, the arrest was considered unlawful, and they got a compensation of the lump sum.
Coalition for Humane Immigrant Rights (CHIRLA)
CHIRLA group is located in California. The organization fights to protect the immigrant individuals as well as their families.
The CHIRLA groups also aim at changing the policies of human, civil and immigrants’ rights. They believe in the power and opinion of the public. This is why they plan on convincing the public to change their opinion on their policies and in the process, change the policies.
The CHIRLA group was formed after the 1986 Act. The act banned the employment of undocumented citizens. This was going to lead to abuse of labor. As a result, the movement was formed to prevent this from happening.
Through CHIRLA group lives of many immigrants and their families have improved.
