Active American Groups Defending Civil Liberties

Even in the new millennium the last vestiges of hatred and discrimination have not been forgotten. Those belonging to certain racial groups as well as refugees and migrants have been the brunt of persecution, the likes of which would have made the Gestapo proud.

But perhaps the most saddening notion is that this aggression and hostility toward our fellow men, women and children is not restricted to the fringes of our society but perpetrated by the man in the White House.

Despite this latest tide of discrimination and hatred, the vast majority of Americans believe that banding together and lifting the downtrodden is the only way to put an end to brutality and create a better world. Read more: Michael Larcey | Twitter and Michael Larcey | Facebook

If you feel the same, you are in the company of folks like Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., Nelson Mandela and many more. The following article will introduce you to many forward-thinking individuals who have formed organizations and groups that fight for civil liberties and human rights.

The Border Angels

All across the US-Mexican border, the rights of humans are in danger now more than ever. Trump’s aggression against those he feels are responsible for financial and social disruption is not only misplaced. This is where the border angels work to protect the rights of migrants and those in need. Regular educational programs and seminars are only part of the services they provide in this region.

National Immigration Law Center

In an effort to extend a hand to those immigrants and especially those who have found themselves in strained financial states, this law center offers solutions to their plight. In addition to educational and orientation programs, the national Immigration Law Center works to provide advocacy and policy analysis for each situation. More information can be found at the National Immigration Law Center Web Site.

The Lacey and Larkin Border Fund

Jim Larkin and Michael Lacey established the Border Fund to provide financial resources to those advocacy groups working in and around the Arizona area. The two men also founded the Village voice and Phoenix New Times periodical. When they received a generous sum of money as a settlement for a clear case of abuse of authority, they immediately donated the resources to those who work to prevent this type of abuse.

CHIRLA (The Coalition for Humane Immigrant Rights of Los Angeles)

Immigrants and refugees come from across the globe to seek a better life in sunny California. CHIRLA works with the many different ethnicities, races and political refugees that arrive in the Los Angeles area. As an advocacy group, CHIRLA not only defends the rights of these people, but also works to provide education programs that improve their lives as well.

Final Notes — these are only a few of the many organizations in operation today to fight for human rights and defend the downtrodden. If you believe that lifting your fellow man, woman and child is the path to a better tomorrow, don’t sit this one out. Your skills, time or resources are in great need, find a way to put some action to those beliefs.

About Lacey and Larkin Frontera Fund

 

Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin Still Targeting Joe Arpaio

Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin are certainly acquainted to controversy. One of their most nationally publicized instances of controversy was when they were illegally arrested by Joe Arpaio. The story made national headlines, featured in publications such as the New York Times and USA Today.

Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin are journalists themselves. During their time in college, Lacey and Larkin worked together in order to provide students with a liberal alternative to the school’s conservative paper. After the school began to express their distaste for student protesters, Lacey and Larkin caught the attention of students with their truly free publication.

Lacey and Larkin had a similar motive at the Phoenix New Times, a paper which they eventually purchased together. At the New Times, Lacey and Larkin had one primary target: Joe Arpaio.

Joe Arpaio had been running the county police department like a dictator, even opening a self-proclaimed concentration camp to house inmates. The New Times had been writing about all of Joe Arpaio’s activities, at least until Lacey and Larkin were arrested.

A judge declared the arrest illegal, Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin sued, and they were awarded nearly 4 million dollars.

With this money, Jim Larkin and Michael Lacey created The Frontera Fund, a charitable organization that was created to help Latinos. Latinos are the primary recipient of Lacey and Larkin’s altruism because they feel like they share something in common: they were all the victims of Joe Arpaio. Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin also donate to more well-known charities such as the ACLU.

Even though Joe Arpaio is no longer Sheriff of Maricopa County, Lacey and Larkin still consider him a threat. In the pages of Front Page Confidential, Lacey and Larkin’s newest paper, they still cover Joe Arpaio extensively.

ECU Reports Much Optimism In Their Efforts

The End Citizens United website has recently posted several articles regarding excellent progress being made in their efforts to reform campaign finance encroachments. The ECU is committed to engaging Democrats in changing how money is given to candidates to run their campaigns and more transparency becoming available for US voters.

 

President and executive director of End Citizens United, Tiffany Muller, delves into the Russia influence that has recently come under investigation in her post on the ECU website. It’s been reported that Russia may have influenced the outcome of the 2016 presidential election by putting digital ads “out there.” It is still uncertain exactly how that came about or who was backing this unfair and outrageous tactic but, as Tiffany puts it “…loopholes the size of the Kremlin exist..” making it possible for this to happen. Our citizens are starting to realize that there should be much more transparency and that if we are to continue to operate as a true democracy “Congress must do better.”

 

In addition, the 2018 House election cycle is now on the horizon. The ECU has named seventeen candidates that will receive money from ECU supporters through its PAC. It’s projected that $35 million will be raised which is $10 million above what was raised for candidates in the 2016 race. The first quarter already reports $4 million that has been raised through donations from 100,000 donors. End Citizens United looks at candidates who have decided to run and then makes sure that they only support those whose philosophies on this much-needed reform run parallel to what ECU is trying to achieve. Volunteers who were recruited in Montana exposed Greg Gianforte’s unlawful acceptance of money which went against state and federal campaign finance laws. These revelations can hurt a candidate’s chances of election and the ECU also focusses on this aspect of electing representatives in a democracy such as the US. More and more people are becoming aware of how much this hurts the country and the ECU is determined to educate the people on who they are voting for.

 

ECU screens candidates partly through a questionnaire they’re required to fill out. This eleven question form gathers information about whether the candidate agrees with or opposes the Supreme Court’s Citizens United decision in addition to their views on policy such as the KOCH Act. This act demands “dark money organizations” to disclose the names of major contributors at the end of televised political ads. The seventeen house endorsements are Nannette Barragan, Salud Carbajal, Scott Peters, Norma Torres, Elizabeth Esty, Charlie Crist, Stephanie Murphy, John Yarmuth, Anthony Brown, Jim McGovern, Ann McLane Kuster, Carol Shea-Porter, Josh Gottheimer, Louise Slaughter, Tom Suozzi, Paul Tonko and David Cicilline.

DeVos Offers a New Vision of Education at Summit

DeVos was in Salt Lake City on May 9th for the annual ASU+GSV Technology Summit. She spent the day visiting the Granite Technical Institute, part of the Utah’s innovative “Pathways Program,” which is meant to prepare students to enter the workplace with the technical skills necessary for today’s economy. Afterwards, DeVos told an audience of industry and government officials that we are only beginning to see the role technology can play in education. The Secretary said that American was trying to use a 19th Century “Prussian” model to compete in a 21st Century global economy. “I doubt you would design a system that’s focused on inputs rather than outputs; that prioritizes seat-time over mastery; that moves kids through an assembly line without stopping to ask whether they’re actually ready for the next step or that’s more interested in preserving the status quo rather than embracing necessary change.” DeVos said the Federal Government should not hamstring the states in their efforts to find new solutions to the challenges of education in the 21st Century. Read more about their foundation at dbdvfoundation.org.

Later in the day, while answering questions from the Jeanne Allen, the CEO of the Center For Education Reform, Secretary Betsy DeVos reaffirmed her support for school choice as the path to innovation. Student outcomes shouldn’t be based on their zip code argued DeVos. “All children should have an equal opportunity for a great education and we are committed to empowering parents to be able to make more of those decisions on behalf of their children,” The Secretary likened the choice parents make about their children education to other choices we make as consumers. “If you can’t get cell phone service in your living room, then your particular provider is failing you. You should have the option to find a network that does work.”

Also during her keynote speech at the ASU+GSV Summit, Secretary DeVos set her sights beyond K-12, discussing the future of higher education. The Secretary raised the possibility of scrapping the Higher Education Act, suggesting it was time for a fresh start to tertiary education. “Why would we reauthorize an act that’s 50–60 years old and that has continued to be amended,” DeVos asked? “Why wouldn’t we start afresh and talk about what we need in this century and beyond for educating and helping our young people — and adults — learn? The world has changed. We have many adults who are well into careers who want to go back and get a different kind of education. We should be considering the needs of individuals and students, not a system so much.” Chief among changes discussed was a new approach to accreditation, concentrating more on certifying students as competent in certain skill sets as opposed to certifying institutions.

Medical Excellence at the Copa Star Hospital

The hospital experience is one of the many things that should constantly be undergoing changes and development in terms of staff, attitude, and establishment. Healthcare is one of the most important parts of a person’s wellbeing, and it should always be enhanced further and further.

Revolution in terms of the hospital experience has started in Brazil with the establishment of a hospital called Copa Star. Copa Star is located on Figueiredo Magalhães Street in the city of Copacabana. It is a very particular hospital due to several reasons – the interior, the service, and the environmentally conscious approach of the establishment. Read more at Scoopnest about Copa Star.

The hospital of Copa Star was built in a way that will conserve the use of energy through the building in terms of heating using the cold months and air condition during the hot months. The hospital believes that it should deliver care not only to the patients but the environment and thus to the people outside of the hospital.

The interior of Hospital Copa Star has been designed to look like a five-star hotel. The corridors look nothing like the halls of a conventional hospital; there is not a trace of the usual hospital smell either. The waiting area is comfortable and relaxing sporting plush furniture such as comfortable couches and armchairs. It is completed with coffee table, and art is lining the walls of most corridors at the Copa Star Hospital.

There is also a gallery at the hospital. The medical institution is a collector of Yutaka paintings, and so far it has amassed more than two hundred paintings by the famous Japanese artist. The gallery is open to all patients and visitors. In fact, the medical staff prompts patients to spend some time at the gallery and enjoy the art as spiritual healing is a must in order to achieve faster physical recovery. Visit the site rededor.com to know more.

One of the smartest additions to the hospital of Copa Star is the transit ward of the hospital. The transit ward is a network of corridors in the building that is used only by the staff members. When patients need to be transported, officials use the special transit system. That way they do not disturb visitors and are also able to carry the patient a lot quicker.

Copa Star has created a revolution among hospitals. The establishment was built in order to prompt another hospital in Brazil and all around the world to strive more and to go after higher achievements. Health care is crucial, and it needs to e developed continuously. The Copa Star Hospital has shown its dedication through its design, excellent medical staff, and the cutting edge technology that the hospital supplies itself with regularly to provide the best service possible.

Betsy DeVos, The Champion of Educational Reform

If you have school aged children, went to public school, like I did, or are a public school teacher, like many of my friends, you might be aware of how frustrating and disappointing the American public school system can be. In certain areas, public schools have the money and resources to cater to the children they serve. But in many places, they are failing. Schools are falling apart, books are outdated, and teachers don’t have the resources available to reach every student. For many children across our nation, this is the relativity of school life.

For Betsy DeVos, this reality became haunting when her own children reached school age. She says that she was lucky because she could afford to send their children to a good school regardless of the tuition cost, but she quickly realized, looking at the parents around her, that this was not true for many. “Well, that touched home,” DeVos said in an interview in Philanthropy Magazine, “Dick and I became increasingly committed to helping other parents—parents from low-income families in particular.” DeVos felt that all parents should have the ability to send their children to the right school, and she’s worked hard throughout the last three decades to bring that belief to life. Read more about their foundation at dbdvfoundation.org.

DeVos started the highly successful Great Lakes Education Project, which has challenged outdated educational practices by promoting the expansion of charter schools all across Michigan, her home state and my own. She was a key player in forming the American Federation for Children, an organization which has helped 430,000 students across 25 states and the District of Columbia to find their school of choice. She also personally worked for 15 years in Grand Rapids schools helping at-risk students; an experience which she says “changed my life and my perspective about education forever.”

This year Betsy DeVos was confirmed as the 11th U.S. secretary of education. She intends to use her position in government to return the control of education to the local level, so that parents have more power and say over their children’s education. DeVos believes that success, for her, means “[that] all parents, regardless of their zip code, have had the opportunity to choose the best educational setting for their children. And that all students have had the opportunity to fulfill their God-given potential.” She doesn’t intend to stop working until she achieves that goal.

As a Michigan resident, I’ve seen firsthand how DeVos’ efforts have changed the educational landscape for the better. I’ve had friends who have benefited from charter schools that offered the education they needed to achieve their goals. Given her current position, I’m excited to see what new reforms she’ll bring in the coming years. Read her interview with Philanthropy Table.
