The immigrants are also human, and some groups fight for them to be treated as they deserve. One such group is The Advocates for Human Rights. This is a group whose primary mission is to ensure that the international human rights standards have been implemented. This will then make sure that the society has followed the rule of law.
The institution has been able to involve some volunteers to do their research, to educate and for advocacy. Therefore, it has managed to build some broad constituencies in the U.S. and also the global communities.
The Advocates for Human Rights was established in the year 1963. As the institution was beginning, it only had a small group of lawyers. These lawyers were able to see the unique spirit that Minnesota had for social justice. A first, the attorneys came up with Minnesota Lawyers International Human Rights Committee.

This committee was established so as the members and the public would get an education on the issues of human rights. They would then be able to support and promote the efforts of lawyers found all over the world.
In 1992, the organization was able to change its name to Minnesota Advocates for Human Rights. Later, in 2008, the firm wanted to have a better reflection of how much they were hoping they could promote the human rights. They, therefore, changed their name to The Advocates for Human rights.
The organization has some principles that they follow to guide them as they struggle to fight for the rights of every human. They are hoping to develop some practical, creative and sustainable strategies that will help them to protect the rights of the people.
Lacey and Larkin are committed to being agile and can quickly adapt to the changes in the methods that they use. They also try to use the resources they have efficiently and retain every employee that is committed and talented.
Another group that advocates the rights of the immigrants is the Larkin & Lacey Frontera Fund. This is an organization that was founded by Jim Larkin and Michael Lacey. The two were reporters. They were able to establish the Phoenix New Times.
The money that they received from a settlement case they had is what they dedicated to beginning this organization. The two arrested by Sheriff Joe Arpaio on October 18th the year 2007.
They were arrested at night from their homes. This was because they had revealed some grand jury proceedings and the existence of this jury. The jury demanded that the two to give any articles that they had that covered the Sheriff.
They also demanded to know the citizens who had subscribed to read the online articles from the New Times. The two sued the county for being harassed in this way. Read more: Michael Larcey | Crunchbase and Jim Larkin |LinkedIn
