For a long time, civil, human and migrant rights have been ignored. The public has taken the laws into their hands, and the government has failed to provide the protection needed to ensure the safety of the vulnerable groups. Several migrants have lost their lives along the borders because of poor protection policies.
Since they do not belong to the host countries, they may not have the authority to demand their rights. For this reason, some organizations help with the process. Some of the groups deal with funding of these activities and the others champion for these rights through active involvement
Lacey and Larkin Frontera Fund
Among the financiers of such activities are Jim and Michael. The duo was arrested in 2007 for an article against Sheriff Joe. They were taken from their homes in the middle of the night which was against the human rights. Upon the reception of settlement fund amounting to $3.75 million, they donated the entire amount to the course of fighting for human, civil and migrant rights.
Today, Larkin and Lacey are the co-founders of Phoenix New York Times, and they support the cause of human rights. They used their resources to ensure that all the other citizens get fair treatment.
American Civil Liberties Union
This is an organization that has been in existence since 1920. It has championed for the human rights on different levels as long as the citizens are in America. The union funds its activities. The cases that require court intervention are determined, and the ones who need street actions are equally separated.
Their activities have helped the minority groups like the gays and the lesbians, people with disabilities as well as the minority tribes in America. Through their activities, several legislations have been enacted to ensure that the citizens get the best from their services.
Border Advocacy Groups
This is an organization that brings together different groups supporting the same course. The organization deals with the protection of the migrants. At the borders, there are a lot of challenges that the immigrant face. Several deaths have occurred especially in the Mexican-United States border.

The issues that bring this challenge can be addressed if the right laws were enacted. The Border Advocacy Groups consist of groups from different borders with the same intention of protection. Many migrants have arrived at their destinations safely through their support and the enacted laws.
Fund for Global Human Rights
Most human rights activities are derailed because of the difficulties that they experience when it comes to funds. There are organizations which are willing to support the activities, but they cannot express their intentions through public actions.
Fund for Global Human Rights has spent millions of dollars in supporting the course of human rights. The group ensures that the cases that touch on human rights are funded so that justice can be served.
The major is the groups that have been discriminated. The minority and the disabled who cannot defend themselves are among the beneficiaries.
