Civil, Human and Migrant Rights

There are a number of groups whose main purpose is to fight and advocate for civil human and migrant rights. These groups are distributed all over the world. Some of these groups include:

ACLU Immigrants’ Rights Project

This is a project whose main objective is to safeguard civil and human rights of immigrants. It strives to achieve its objectives through advocacy, outreach and litigation.

It is worth noting that this project tackles the biggest litigation programs in the nation, thanks to the supreme and district courts. The courts are deeply entrenched towards the realization and actualization of the human rights of the immigrants.

Mike and Jim are the brain behind this noble project that strives to provide justice for all despite the immigration status. This has championed a new dawn for the change of laws that denied immigrants their rights.

Amazon Watch

Amazon Watch is based in San Francisco, and it mainly lays emphasis on the Amazon basin. The organization works towards the advancement and protection of indigenous people’s rights.

It does this in collaboration with indigenous groups and environmental organizations. The growth of largescale development projects in the Amazon Basin has necessitated the growth and development of Amazon Watch.

The Coalition for Humane Immigrant Rights (CHIRLA)

CHIRLA is a leading group that spearheads the rights of immigrant families as well as those of individuals. It is based in California.

The group acts as an agent of free mobility human rights as well as participation in democracy. Its main aim is to promote an all-inclusive society when everyone is treated fairly and equally. Read more: Michael Lacey | Twitter
