The Fight for Human Rights with Lacey and Larkin Frontera Fund

Published / by UpToMe / Leave a Comment

It is a known fact that the fight for human, civil and migrant is not easy. Each individual around the world is entitled to certain rights irrespective of their place of birth, race, religion, ethnicity and their immigration status. However, many people in the society lack access to these rights in the generation that we are living.

Although organizations and governments have managed to spend many years by trying to bring civilization, certain countries have failed to resist change. Such countries consist of some groups that do not have some of the basic needs due to different reasons. In such a case, these groups end up living miserable lives as a result.

Most of the times, these groups live in housing that is substandard, denied proper healthcare and education and given meager wages. This kind of treatment is always inhuman and no human being should be subjected to it.

In order to bring an end to this inhumane act, a number of organizations which are headed by people who have clear conscience have come up from all parts of the world. Human activists fight for the rights of the unprivileged in the society. Read more: Jim Larkin | Angel.co and Jim Larkin | LinkedIn

These institutions have managed to succeed in the fight for human rights in some societies. They have also taught people on how to be aware of their rights and stand up for them.

Although there is still a lot of work to be done when it comes to the fight for human rights, many of the organizations have managed to register victories. There are two individuals who have stood up against this fight for human rights. They are Jim Larkin and Michael lacey. Together they started the Lacey and Larkin Frontera Fund.

Through this organization, they have managed to support and fund many organizations that are championing for human rights. Many years ago, the two partners who are also journalists were arrested and after the court decided that they were arrested wrongfully, they were given a heavy compensation.

Michael lacey and Jim Larkin used the compensation from the court to start the lacey and Larkin Frontera Fund and have ever since worked hard to ensure that all people are treated equally. Many lives have been transformed through the Lacey and Larkin Frontera Fund.

Many immigrants living in the United States have also been assisted through the help of these two journalists. Michael and Jim have gone under history as the two most passionate human activists in the world.

George Soros: The Man Who Wants The Best Kind of Capitalism

Published / by UpToMe / Leave a Comment

In the February 1997 issue of The Atlantic, George Soros, the famous stock trader, opened a discussion how the best democratic society will now depend on how we understand capitalism.

There’s a lot to capitalism other than how it is the only thriving economic movement dynamics today. Geroge Soros in the article features how the philosophy of Hegel was able to discern the disturbing historical pattern today that augurs for a world and civilization that’s fragile and ready to crack and fall. He mentioned in the article how this is related to the untrammeled and unregulate laissez faire capitalism that intensified the wrong values for the world. It is this unregulated nature and progress of capitalism that is contributing to the decline of a more open and democratic society. He showed in the article that he wrote himself that it is no longer communism that’s threatening us, but the threat of an infinitely uncontrolled capitalist mentality.

George Soros’ Answers As a fan of Karl Popper, George Soros finds solace in his theories to find the closest answers to solving the issues plaguing the global capitalist society. He mentioned that the answers needed by the capital markets would most likely come from ensuring that an open society is an element in all political systems.

It is also his vision that the answers for the problem would often resurface in understanding the fallibility of man and building a framework for world using this analysis. It is in inculcating a culture of subjectivity in our thoughts that George Soros think we can answer the demands of the modern markets.

George Soros’ ProfileIn the official and reliable website of Open Society Foundations, George Soros emphasizes the need for an open society. Being the foundation or network’s founder and chairman, George Soros continues to pursue his passion for education, liberal thinking and subjectivity in all the advocacies he supports with various charities.

George Soros is today’s foremost philanthropist who was able to donate billions of dollars of his assets to pursue the answers to the problems caused by the capitalist threats.

He made the name when in 1992 he shorted the English pound currency and profited hugely from the very risky almost Black Swan trade. With the money he amassed, he continues to build a name in supporting causes that tackle transparency in the governments, justice in the society and anti-discrimination programs that answer for immigration rights.

Soros also made the name when he started the Soros Fund Management, a trading firm responsible for huge trades that changed the entire dynamics of the global stock trade. Today he continues his work for Open Society Foundations by traveling all over the world advocating for social and policy reform.

From the time to date, she has worked tirelessly to scale the agency to the greatest financial achievements, one that was witnessed in the fiscal year that ended last year. In this case, the company, the company realized a 21% appraisal in the profits courtesy of the escalated marketing schemes that M had instituted in the enterprise. According to Ad Week, she also ensured that the working personnel was diligent in their delivery to ensure maximum productivity from all the employees.

Restructuring CP+B’s Leadership

From such a streak of committed and fruitful leadership, the announcement of her stepping down by the end of 2017 has ‘ruffled most feathers’ in CP+B. The ruffling comes with the dire need of fill this position that she occupied. According to Mr. Porter, he opined that Ms. Lori replacement is one daunting task that he will never be under pressure to execute. He has therefore called upon Ms. Lori to help them in restructuring the leadership of the agency ahead of her permanent absence from the company. She has since advocated for an elevation of regional leaders of CP+B’s ten offices around the region. In this light, she has asserted that this venture would ensure that the passionate leaders will be able to share the agency’s resource more seamlessly hence leading to better service delivery and appraisal of the company to greater levels.

Over the past nearly twenty years the charity has been focused on bringing relief and aid to at risk children living in the Eastern Cape of South Africa. For their 10th annual gala dinner the team at the Ubuntu Fund brought together nearly 300 guests in order to raise money for their Port Elizabeth campus. The goal of this charity dinner was to raise nearly $1 million in total donations by way of a charity auction and several other events throughout the night.

Andrew Rolfe, chairman at the Ubuntu Fund, served as the host for the evenings activities, and he managed to get everyone in the mood to really experience the work that they have been doing in South Africa. Rolfe opened up the night with a speech before giving way to the various other events of the night. One of the headlining events for the night was a high octane auction featuring auctioneer Charlie Ross and a slew of high quality items. Among the different items up for auction were paintings by Dom Pattinson and Nelson Makamo. A trip to South Africa fro a vacation was also up for donation. These items alone raised nearly $40,000.

The highlight of the night was easily when Sinesipho Rabidyani and Malizole Gwaxula took to the stage to tell the story as to how the Ubuntu Fund managed to bring them relief and help to pursue a brighter future. Rabidyani told her story of growing up in a broken home with a violent and alcoholic father. Things looked bleak for her until she was able to connect with the Ubuntu Fund and pursue higher education. Speaking with joy at the event, Rabidyani announced that she was going to be attending law school. Malizole Gwaxula owns a school in South Africa and that led her to connect with Jacob Lief, thus bringing the Ubuntu Fund to life.

After all the donations were counted the Ubuntu Fund raised nearly $700,000 in donations for the Ubuntu Fund. Andrew Rolfe and Jacob Lief were both in attendance and considered it a great turnout.
