Cause of the Week: Human Rights

Social Justice; Human Trafficking; LGBTQIA; Women & Girls; Legal Aid; Crime Prevention; Persons with Disabilities  

Protecting, defending, and promoting human rights is fundamental to ensuring autonomy and freedom for all. Human rights touch the lives of everyone: those with a disability, Native populations, those discriminated racially and ethnically, the LGBTQIA+ community, the unhoused, refugees and migrants, patients and those recovering from addiction, prisoners, and countless others. Many CFC charities create a more equitable, accessible, free future for millions of people around the globe. As long-time advocates and progressive agents, they have expanded and defended the legality of human rights inherent to populations around the world. 

$180 sponsors one rescue boat to liberate 15 children from slavery in the fishing industry. Here’s how your CFC donations help to change the world through advancing human rights:
