There are many civil, human and migrant rights groups in the world. These organizations have the common purpose of fighting for the rights of the less fortunate in the society.
They do so by educating their niche, providing basic need, supporting education and pressuring the government to change laws that oppress the underprivileged. They make it possible for these groups of people to have a better life and an even better future. Some of these organizations include

Justice That Works
Justice that Works is a human rights group that was founded by attorney Heather Hamel. The organization was established to help reduce the incarceration of those convicted while at the same time reducing crimes.

The Florence Immigrant and Refugee Rights Project
The Department of Homeland Security warehouses thousands of migrants in Arizona. These migrants are usually warehoused awaiting deportation. The sad thing is that a majority of these migrants have solid cases, but do not have the money to get themselves good lawyers. Consequently, they face unfair judgement.
The Florence Immigrant and Refugees Rights Project was founded for the purpose of helping such migrants. They offer them free representation using some of their best attorneys. This way, the migrants have better chances at not being deported.
American Civil Liberties Union of Arizona
The American Civil Liberties Union of Arizona (ACLU Arizona) was founded in the year 1959. The organization was founded to challenge unconstitutional laws, in Arizona, that suppressed the minorities. ACLU Arizona has been doing this for over half a millennium and has had some life changing achievements.
For example, in the year 1960, the organization successfully won a case to undo a state law that was against inter-racial marriages. To this date, the organization continues to unite people along the southern border while actively fighting against unconstitutional state laws.
