It is in this context that we look at some of the strongest advocacy groups in the united states that are leading from the front to ensure that the respect and recognition of the fundamental rights and freedoms is not a privilege but a right as enshrined in the constitution.

Over the last twenty-five years, the ACLU has been one of the most vocal advocates of the rights of others they have worked through what seemed like insurmountable odds to achieve very much over a short period of time.

This is a union that has been brought together with the purpose of working towards the preservation of rights of all Americans and those of foreigners living in the country. Civil liberties are a wide range of privileges that every citizen is entitled to enjoy and are not exclusive to any one group of people. Through their work, this liberty will continue to be part of the country’s heart.
American Association for Affirmative Action
The AAAA brings together various groups of professionals who work towards managing affirmative action. They are firm believers in the provision of equal opportunity at every level of society without discrimination or profiling based on any reason.
The diversity of the country ensures that it is rich in culture and as so it something that should be preserved and embraced. Through their work, they have been able to push the public and private sector to work towards achieving diversity in their workplaces and ensuring equal opportunity for all. They also have community programs that teach and advocate the need for affirmative action especially among the poor in society.
The Frontera Fund foundation
This was a fund started with 3.5 million in seed money that was awarded to Mike Lacey and Jim Larkin by the 9th district court for the abuse of their rights by the county led by the then Sheriff Joe Arpaio.
The fund works with lawyers, advocates and other like-minded groups in ensuring that rights of the Hispanic community are respected at all times. Mike Lacey and Jim Larkin have worked through legislation and other methods to deliver their client’s hard-won battles when their rights are infringed upon.
