Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin do not violate human rights. They support and protect them as best as they can through the Frontera Fund. They started this initiative. They continue to proudly carry it through to greater and greater achievements. They are not alone.
In fact, countless individuals and organizations appeal for such causes, and for that, many are grateful in turn. Even the thousands of groups and agencies that now exist must have come from somewhere; you may be surprised to learn that there were countless others before them too.
If you really want to trace the dates back, you can probably go back as far as the story of Moses in the Bible as he freed the people of Israel from the bondage that the current Pharaoh wanted to retain them in: “Let my people go”.

Moses was one of history’s very first recorded human rights activists, and since then, the movement has only further grown to what we now have today, and it is no less than spectacular altogether.
With one person, anything can happen. Imagine what can be accomplished with two or more. The possibilities are infinite and too good to count.
The political arena is now one that needs human rights champions more than ever before. Many modern government leaders have abused their power beyond belief and must be checked. When any government confers too much power upon its officials, then this tyranny is allowed to happen; do you remember what has happened with Russia, Venezuela, Mexico, North Korea and the Czech Republic in the last few years?
Human beings everywhere, regardless of status, race, color, creed, religion, power or past, have the right to stand up and fight for themselves. If they do not do it, then who will do it for them? The answer is likely no one, except for those wonderful rights agencies and individuals that serve as the brave and the bold, those few souls who risk it all to make a difference – such as Michael and Jim.
Without people and businesses like this to spread awareness and stir the people to action, perhaps the situation would be even more difficult in these countries now. Imagine if there was no voice at all; who would lead the people and start a movement?
Even in Pharaoh’s time, there was someone willing to stand up and make a difference – so it must be in every generation, if all is not to be lost. That nasty Pharaoh was no king but a serious human rights violator who needed to either step down or be removed, which happened perfectly.
Kim Jong Un is a violator. Nicolas Maduro is a violator. Adolf Hitler was a violator. The list goes on, but the point is this: What do we know now, and what are we willing to do about it now?
