The Advocates for Human Rights has been the great players in the quest for human rights in the world. Founded in 1983, The Advocates for Human Rights is a non-partisan non-profit organization. They advocate for change locally, regionally and even at the global level through support offered by volunteers, their partners, and their workers.
They have been advocating for human rights for over three decades now; representing refugees, women and children, and immigrants. Through their extensive research, they expose human rights violations and help refugees and immigrants seeking the settlement.
The Advocates define human rights as setting favorable conditions that allow people from all areas of the world to live in peace, have their freedom and uphold their dignity, serve the equally and in a just way. The fact that you are human being qualifies you to enjoy these rights. Read more: Jim Larkin |LinkedIn

The Advocates recently joined other human rights organizations in the new campaign fighting against the deportation of immigrants. They helped assemble lawyers efforts and to mobilize other professionals to protect the rights of immigrants. The campaign has been duped #StandWithImmigrants. They are opposing the US move to separate immigrant families as they are entering the border terming it cruel and un-American.
The organization is calling for volunteers to help them advance their agendas. They need volunteers to represent asylum seekers, help in translating and interpreters, conducting research and documenting the findings, providing office and event support.

Michael Lacey and Jim Larking, the co-founders of Phoenix New Times decided to provide financial support to groups fighting for the rights of immigrants all over Arizona. The two journalists channeled over $3.75 million arising from their settlement after they were arrested by the Sheriff.
Their arrest came after they published a story about the Sherriff revealing that there was a grand jury suit that sought reporters notes after publishing a story about the Sheriff.
