Advocating For Human Rights: the Leading Organizations in Making the World Right

Everyone human being has rights. Some rights are enshrined in constitutions, especially in the developed and the developing democracies. There are also global organizations- such as the United Nations- that bring nations together so as to set a common base for the implementation of human rights. However, not all administrations adhere to the guidelines of human rights provisions.

As a matter of fact, some governments have been historically involved in a gross violation of human rights to the point of attracting general outcries over the same. That notwithstanding, human rights are diverse and cannot, therefore, be addressed sufficiently on a single platform. As such, there are thousands of organizations that work towards fighting and advocating for these rights.

The United States boasts of being the leading nation regarding ensuring that policies on human rights are well implemented, which explains why the nation also has the majority of human rights advocacy groups. Here are a few of them.

CHIRLA

The Coalition for Humane Immigration Rights of Los Angeles has been on the forefront in fighting for immigrants’ rights since 1986. The organization, however, attained its non-profit status in 1993. It was initially operating within Los Angeles County but eventually graced the national stage.

The organization has played a key part in developing laws that safeguard the rights of immigrants living in the country as well as pushing for the implementation of those rights. Besides that, CHIRLA mentored and facilitated the growth of other like-minded organizations in the 80s and the 80s.

Together with those organizations, CHIRLA was able to stand against some draconian laws that were unfair to immigrants, especially the working immigrants. Read more: Jim Larkin |LinkedIn

Together with a few other human rights advocacy groups, CHIRLA pushed for the adoption of the Assembly Bill 2536. The bill that took effect from 2004 made it mandatory for every employer to pay their domestic workers compensation for overtime hours. CHIRLA also played a key role in the establishment of the Garment Worker Center in 2001. The center addresses the challenges that face workers in the garment industry

The Advocates for Human Rights

The Advocates for Human Rights operates in North America, Asia, Europe, and Africa. Through its Women’s Human Rights Program, the organization addresses human right violations that affect women. It has in particular been very vocal in fighting for the enactment of laws that protect women from domestic violence, employment discrimination, and sexual harassments.

SDIRC

The San Diego Immigration Rights Consortium (SDIRC) was established a decade ago with the aim of pushing for immigration reforms. The organization has also worked hard in educating immigrants living in San Diego in their rights. SDIRC also invests in neutralizing the dehumanizing myths that Americans have about immigrants.

The Larkin & Lacey Frontera Fund

The Larkin & Lacey Frontera Fund channels resources into funding human rights activist groups in America, particularly in Arizona. The fund was set up by Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin, two journalists that were wrongly arrested by Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio in 2007.

The duo successfully appealed their case in the United States Court of Appeals, with the settlements that resulted from the court verdict going to the Larkin & Lacey Frontera Fund.

Boraie Development LLC, Revitalizing the New Brunswick, New Jersey Skyline

A 17-story residential high-rise that features luxury living conditions is taking shape in New Brunswick, New Jersey. The Aspire, as it is named, will offer among its amenities, a community kitchen with a lounge, a rooftop patio, and garden, a green roof, on-site parking, a state of the art fitness and yoga center all with a doorman on duty 24/7.

This new edifice which is being built to the tune of $77.2 million could not have happened, said Omar Boraie of Boraie Development, without the help of the EDA’s Urban Transit Hub Program and the New Jersey Housing and Mortgage Financing Agency. As little as 15 years ago New Brunswick was much more of a transient town but now it is a more sophisticated. Check out Central Jersey Working Moms for the details.

Their Aspire leasing office will not open until the end of the month, but already there has been a huge response from potential tenants which are willing to pay $2,800 a month for a two-bedroom apartment. Their architect firm, Costas Kondylis & Partners has also designed all the Trump buildings in New York, and they expect the tenants of these luxury living quarters to be the who’s who of the New Brunswick area.

The Boraie Development, LLC, for 30 years or more has worked to enhance the urban neighborhoods in New Jersey. Their investment strategy in these communities has an intrinsic value due to redevelopment activities. Boarie Development is not just about building rental units, but also develops properties with mixed use potential by building retail buildings. Moreover, Boarie offers leasing, property management services, accounting, and maintenance.

They are in partnership with Shaquille O’Neal which has enabled them to develop residential and commercial real estate in Newark and other areas of New Jersey. An old theater building in Newark has been turned into the CityPlex 12. They also built a new residential $60 million housing tower in the downtown area of Newark that is the first new housing to be developed in that area in fifty years. There is a large retail complex being built in Atlantic City as well as more developments in New Jersey.

According to NJ Biz, Omar Boraie has had for over 40 years a vision of New Brunswick becoming a thriving metropolis, even though people thought he was crazy. They have been debased of that idea with the building of a twenty-five story condominium which is the tallest building in New Brunswick with 121 rental units, 10,000 square feet of retail spaces, 40,000 square feet given over to office spaces and a parking area with 400 spaces.

Founded in 2007 by former classmates with a strong entrepreneurial family background, Sweetgreen has adopted an operational strategy that has seen carved out a name for itself in hospitality industry as one of the leading food chains in the United States. The high-end salad chain has developed unique recipes that resonate with its client base. Their salads are not only healthy; they are fresh and the ingredients are locally sourced. The final right key the salads hit is the organic key; all the salads sold at the 40 outlets of the salad chain are made from organically grown ingredients. They are also organically prepared to give them an authentic organic taste that keeps their clients walking through the doors frequently for a bite.

 

However, Sweetgreen’s success is founded on more than recipes that resonates with the clients. The management team made of cofounders and co-chief executive officers Nathaniel Ru, Nicholas Jammet and Jonathan Neman has adopted innovative and revolutionary management philosophy that has kept their employee base highly motivated. The executive officers lack a main office as they do not believe in the concept of corporate headquarters. Therefore, work from two coastal locations in a bicoastal management strategy that has played a key role in the chain’s success. They also dedicate five days annually to working in the restaurants in person. They close their corporate offices during the period. They have merged technology into the company’s DNA. The company has a mobile application, which is used by up to 30 percent of clients to transact with the restaurant chain dedicated to healthy eating.

Now, Duda Melzer, as he is commonly known, is in control of the different facets of the RBS Group that includes 18 TV stations, 24 top radio stations in the country along with eight newspapers. The company has it’s headquarter at Porto Alegre, and the company aims to expand its offerings under the leadership of Melzer. The company has about 6,000 working directly or indirectly for them.

According to Globo, the RBS Group is one of the top media group in the South of Brazil that runs all the major TV and the radio stations in the region. The company was built in 1957 by the grandfather of Duda Melzer and has since become one of the most successful family businesses in the history of Brazil. Duda had the opportunity to learn about the business from the very best. His grandfather, Mauricio Sirotsky Sobrinho has helped him gain interest in the media industry. After working alongside his uncle, Nelson Sirotsky, for many years, he has gained first-hand experience in running the company. Duda has also spent many years in New York learning about the media industry of the first world country and applying what he learned there in his company.

Even during the recession, the RBS Group had little effect on its business. The company has been fighting for the truth and have exposed many irregularities in the Brazilian government policies. This has helped the company gain loyal viewership. The company has managed to get a profit of $500 million in 2016, and it was when the Brazilian economy shrunk by three percent. It is to be seen how the company performs under the leadership of their newest CEO.

Avaaz Fights Global Corruption And Human Rigths Abuses In An Independent Way

The Avaaz group has always guarded its independence from political and financial interference fiercely since it was established in 2007 and began a new era in activism for many people in the 21st century. Upon its establishment the group that has made its name fighting a range of global issues, including the fight over climate change, human rights abuses, and a wide ranging interest in battling corruption, has always avoided falling into the trap of allowing wealthy donors and corporations drive its political direction; instead, the group began life funded by its founding members and now accepts only grassroots donations of $5,000 or less to ensure its future freedoms.

There are many areas of interest the Avaaz group of activists has taken up in recent years and won a number of stunning victories; Avaaz believes there is little point in fighting for a change in society if there is in planet to live on and has developed many interests in the battle against climate change. The fight over climate change has been coupled with a campaign to protect the bee population across the planet from a reduction in numbers that would be devastating to the future of the planet.

As much of the work of Avaaz is based on Internet based technologies, the group is always looking to protect Internet privacy and limit the censorship being fought for by many governments across the planet. In many areas of the world Avaaz has been seeking to aid in the fight to protect many different groups who are fighting to expose governmental corruption, such as those battling against the issues faced in Brazil. The quick response of Avaaz to many different issues facing the world has led to the group becoming a major force when a humanitarian crisis occurs, such as the European refugee crisis of 2016 that saw Avaaz become a force for campaigning for a humane approach to be taken by government agencies across Europe and beyond.
