Additionally, it encompasses giving a voice and reason to the exploited people. It means calling for accountability from oppressors for the evil acts they perpetrate on the existence of humanity.
Many states oversee stood and fought against this vice that is destroying the love and dignity that human beings possess. The oppressors have often opposed such acts, but the law has also provided justice and a clear path towards a better world.
Consequently, several humanitarian groups have emerged to be part of the process to advocate for civil, human and migrant rights. They have a task, a rigorous and extensive exercise that requires planned and objective inquiry, uphold and support for deeds against human rights ill-treatment.

Another group is Human Rights Center in South Texas. The organization operates in the local community. They have worked tirelessly in protecting and defending human dignity and rights in South Texas.
