The name Human Rights Organization should speak for itself, but for those who do not know what they are and what they do pay attention. First and foremost, the Human Rights Organization was is a nonprofit nonpartisan organization. They have built a foundation of beliefs and morals based upon the International Covenant On Civil and Political rights in 1976. The organization was founded by Thor Halvorssen. They have a mission that states that every human should have the right to do a number of things such as freedom of speech, freedom of self- determination, the right to acquire property, freedom of association, the right to equal and due process under the law along with a few other things that you may feel you are entitled to anyway. The reason Thor Halvorseen and company feel they need to fight for rights we feel like we have is because there is discrimination and privilege all over the world and the United States. There is unequal rights in the legal system, civil rights have been compromised and the people sometimes feel like victims of the government. They also offer programs that teach people about freedom and the importance of a free society and teaches those who do not know that other peoples freedoms are taken away from them that that is the case and is happening all over the world. Thor Halvorsesen is a film producer and has been a long time advocate for the Human Right Organization. The 39 year old Venezuela born college graduate of the University of Pennsylvania has also founded the Moving Picture Institute.
Nothing defines our humanity more than the god-given rights given to us. Sadly, these rights tend to become alienated in secluded, non-westernized societies around the world. Thankfully, the Human Rights Foundation (HRF) is dedicated to ending the seclusion of human rights in these unjust societies.
HRF is a politically nonpartisan organization that is on a mission to promote and defend the rights of human beings. Founded on the ideology of liberal democracy, the Human Rights Foundation believes that all people, regardless of nationality, race, gender or other backgrounds, are entitled to many of the same concepts that America’s founding fathers set out to enact. Among these concepts are the freedoms of speech, association, self-determination, and freedom from enslavement or unnecessary incarceration. The protection of these basic rights is crucial to preserving the liberty and happiness of mankind. This philosophy is what fuels HRF to do their great works around the globe. Their works are seen in the form of protests, campaigning to free political prisoners, educating people on what constitutes a free society, and helping to teach the importance of freedom and human rights.
The Human Rights Foundation was first established in 2005, and it’s offices opened officially in 2006 in New York City. This non-profit organization, like a few others, was founded by a man named Thor Halvorssen Mendoza. Halvorssen is a self-made human rights activist who shows passion for equality and freedom for people all around the world.
Mr. Halvorssen has also displayed his works of activism through various filmmaking and documentary projects. He is known for his works with the documentary Sugar Babies, which sheds light on the rough, inhumane treatment of children working on sugar farms in the Dominican Republic. Thor Halvorssen is also well-known for his political documentaries about the uprisings and overthrowing of tyrannical leaders through history.
