The world today is going through a dire humanitarian crisis, and many different countries, particularly in the middle east are reporting surmounting cases of human rights atrocities like never recorded before. Read more: Michael Larcey | Crunchbase

It is time for people from across the globe to come together and resolve the pending issues that are causing such humanitarian crisis, and even though many of the stable governments are making consistent efforts, there is a lot more that needs to be done. Many humanitarian and charitable organizations are donating to fuse the crisis in different parts of the world and are volunteering to help and support these crisis-stricken regions.

One of the problems that have proved to be disastrous for the world today is the rise of the terrorist organizations and growing number of terrorist activities across the globe. Not only does it cost the lives of thousands and millions of people annually, but it has also made millions of people homeless. Millions of people have displaced in the aftermath of the terrorist activities in the Middle East and its neighboring countries. Read more: Jim Larkin | Crunchbase

These people are looking for shelter, food, education, and safety, and while many countries have welcomed refugees with open arms and provided part of the refugee population refuge in their country, many others have chosen to look the other way.

However, the human rights atrocities and humanitarian crisis are not only witnessed in the war-torn areas and countries, but many developed countries are suffering from a surge in human rights violations reporting.

The United States has seen a major rise in the racial crimes and intolerance against the migrants in the recent years. Many organizations are trying to reduce the numbers of such cases in the country and raise awareness about such issues that can cripple the country from inside.

Some of the major human rights organizations that are working towards the betterment of the world as we know it, especially in the field of human rights violations are Human Rights Watch, Protection International, Human Rights Foundation, Council of Europe, Amnesty International, Global Rights, Human Rights Group, United Nation Human Rights Foundation, and International Federation for Human Rights.

In the United States, the owners of new media firms known as Village Voice Media and the Phoenix Group, Jim Larkin and Michael Lacey, were arrested during the wee hours of the night from their respective homes.

The arrest was made by the Maricopa County Sheriff named Joe Arpaio. The arrests were carried out without proper evidence to validate the arrest, and the court decided in favor of Jim Larkin and Michael Lacey.

As the champions of the human, civil, and migrant rights, their media firms raised voice on many issues, which is what caused the biased arrests, but the federal court not only acquitted them from the case but also awarded them $3.75 million in compensation for the harassment they suffered due to the arrest.

Jim and Michael made the Lacey and Larkin Frontera Fund from the amount they received which is spent to support the organizations and efforts championing the cause they believe in such as human rights, civil liberties, migrants rights, and more.
