The CFC cause of the week is Human Rights. Protecting, defending, and promoting human rights are fundamental to ensuring autonomy and freedom for all. Human rights touch the lives of everyone: those with a disability, Native populations, those who face racial and ethnic discrimination, 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, and 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.*
Here are a few examples of how CFC donations can help:
- Publish materials to educate classrooms on cultural diversity issues.
- Provide legal assistance to overturn wrongful convictions.
- Offer a safe place for refugees fleeing persecution in their home country.
