Human rights are the standards by which human beings should live by when interacting with fellow human beings. They are supposed to make every human being equal. Human rights disregard the differences that human race has in terms of color, gender, age, religion, and others and embrace an approach of creating equality and fairness in the treatment of every human being in the world.
Human rights are guaranteed by the UN charter on human rights. Human rights are universal and they are to be applied all over the world in the same way. Some of the universal human rights are right to life, freedom from discrimination and freedom from slavery. Read more: Lacey and Larkin Frontera Fund and Michael Lacey | Facebook
In the world we live in, violations of human rights is not a new thing. It is a practice that has been happening for a very long time. However, it is a vice that deserves to be condemned in the strongest terms possible. Violators of human rights need to be prosecuted as it is against the law to discriminate any fellow human being.
The campaigns to look at the issues of human rights in the world is led by right groups. Rights groups are usually classified into three; human rights, civil rights, and migrants rights.
There are many groups that operate in the world that have a responsibility of ensuring that human rights are not violated. Some of the groups that have been very vocal in this war against violation of human rights are;
The Coalition for Humane Immigrant Rights (CHIRLA)
This California based group has been around for many years. It has been leading efforts to protect the rights of the immigrants in the state. It was formed after the legislators in this state passed a law that required all undocumented workers to be denied job opportunities. This law created a loophole that employers were using to turn undocumented workers into slaves.
This group rejected this law and campaigned against it. CHIRLA has been working closely with other organization to teach people about the positive aspects of immigration. People need to learn and embrace one another as human beings and not based on the origin.
