George Soros Continues Fight For Equality And Human Rights
Billionaire philanthropist George Soros has not slowed down in his fight for human rights and equality for people all over the world. He has been active in liberal politics for decades and in the last presidential election, he contributed more than $25 million to super PACs that supported Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton.
He has been a consistent donor to Democratic candidates and now with Donald Trump in the White House, Soros has stepped up his efforts. During an appearance at the World Economic Forum, Soros accused then-candidate Trump of “doing the work of ISIS.”
Through his Open Society Foundation, George Soros contributes to those causes and organizations that support social justice. Whether it be supporting protester in Ferguson or helping refugees in Europe, Soros and OFS are fighting the good fight.
Soros has been continuously attacked by hatchet men from the right-wing political spectrum, but he continues his work unabated. Visit projectsyndicate.com to know more about George.
Soros’s concern for those people who do not have a voice and are under the oppression of tyrannical governments comes from personal experience.
Born in Hungary in 1930, he grew up under Nazi occupation where, as a Jew, his family was persecuted. After WWII, Soros then lived under Communist rule when the Soviet Union took power.
As a teenager, Soros fled to England as a refugee and attended the London School of Economics. After graduating, he started his professional career in finance.
He became one of the richest men in the world with a net worth currently estimated at over $25 billion. But Soros has not sat back and counted his money. He is one of the most influential philanthropists in the world, having given away more than $12 billion so far.

He has recently pledged to contribute $500 million in an effort to ease the refugee crisis currently happening throughout Europe. The funds will be earmarked for businesses and organizations that are owned by refugees and immigrants.
Funds will also be allocated to help refugees navigate the maze of red tape that currently exists in their sanctuary countries. The belief is that the sooner they can get settled, the sooner they can assimilate into their new country.
Soros will continue to support social justice and equality no matter what the political climate may be. With such a vast fortune, his work will continue long after he is gone. Read this story at Politico about George Soros.
