One area that has always been of importance to human rights activists has been making sure every person in the world has access to universal healthcare opportunities that can be accessed to make sure wealth does not play a major role in the health of any human being.
As far back as 1966, the U.S. based healthcare system was addressed by perhaps the most famous civil rights activist in the history of the U.S., Martin Luther King Jr. Calling the U.S. healthcare system a form of apartheid, the Minister explained to a packed audience in a well-known speech the American Medical Association was involved in a “conspiracy of inaction” to avoid providing access to avoid allowing access to low-cost healthcare for minority groups and low-income families.
Healthcare is an important subject for civil rights groups, such as the Open Society Foundations who have recently been fighting to reduce the impact of income and poverty on the quality of healthcare accessed by low-income individuals.

In fighting for universal healthcare, the Open Society Foundations has addressed difficult subjects including reproductive rights and justice that can leave many females unable to afford the basic necessities required to assist with family planning and remaining healthy in every aspect of their reproductive health.
The Larking & Lacey Frontera Fund is another group of activists who have been seeking to have an impact on the entire community of people who are living and working within the region of the U.S.-Mexican border.
The group was initially created by Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin after the two journalists were illegally imprisoned due to an investigation they were undertaking into Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio; the two journalists also looked to protect the civil rights of their readers after calls were made to identify Online subscribers to their work.
Social justice ranks highly in the work of the Larkin & Lacey Frontera Fund as the charitable group has been developing links to many groups supporting and protecting a range of minority groups; Larkin & Lacey have begun providing support to the Trans Queer Pueblo group and The Young Center as the Fund seeks to help as many people living along the U.S. border with Mexico regardless of whether they are in the country in a legal or illegal capacity.
