Archbishop L. J. Guillory, confirmed his appointment as Commissioner to the 45 Year old International Human Rights Organization; CITIZENS COMMISSION on HUMAN RIGHTS "CCHR".
The Citizens Commission on Human Rights (CCHR) is a nonprofit mental health watchdog, responsible for helping to enact more than 150 laws protecting individuals from abusive or coercive practices. CCHR has long fought to restore basic inalienable human rights to the field of mental health, including, but not limited to, full informed consent regarding the medical legitimacy of psychiatric diagnosis, the risks of psychiatric treatments, the right to all available medical alternatives and the right to refuse any treatment considered harmful.
CCHR functions solely as a mental health watchdog, working alongside many medical professionals including doctors, scientists, nurses and those few psychiatrists who have taken a stance against the biological/drug model of “disease” that is continually promoted by the psychiatric/pharmaceutical industry as a way to sell drugs. It is a nonpolitical, nonreligious, nonprofit organization dedicated solely to eradicating mental health abuse and enacting patient and consumer protections. CCHR’s Board of Advisers, called Commissioners, include doctors, scientists, psychologists, lawyers, legislators, educators, business professionals, artists and civil and human rights representatives.
The Citizens Commision Commission on Human Rights has been on the front lines of mental health reform since 1969. Acknowledged by the Special Rapporteur to the United Nations Human Rights Commission as responsible for “many great reforms” that protect people from psychiatric abuse, CCHR has documented thousands of individual cases that demonstrate psychiatric drugs and often-brutal psychiatric practices create insanity and cause violence.
Over the course of more than four decades, CCHR's work has helped to save the lives of millions and prevented needless suffering for millions more. Many countries have now mandated informed consent for psychiatric treatment and the right to legal representation, advocacy, recourse and compensation for patients. In some countries, the use of psychosurgery and electroshock on children is banned.
And with hundreds of chapters in 34 countries, CCHR members are active worldwide—organizing marches, public hearings, exhibits, and other actions to raise public awareness about the criminality rampant within psychiatry.

Archbishop Guillory, founder of Ombudsman International; which is an advocate for human rights around the world, particularly for American citizens who live or travel abroad. An ombudsman is a nonpartisan public official who investigates complaints by individuals against government agencies or public officials. Most complaints regard the unjust or excessively harsh treatment of people by police officers, prosecuting attorneys, or judges. Other complaints regard bribery and extortion by public officials as well as other forms of misconduct. After investigating a complaint, the Ombudsman may dismiss it or seek correction of the problem by persuasion, by publicity, or, occasionally, by recommending prosecution.
Ombudsman International, is also the birth place of National Ombudsman, which is an Independent Government Oversight Agency; acting as an advocate for private citizens in response to complaints of misconduct against public officials, public employees, and private contractors employed by public entities. The agency investigates complaints, issues reports of its findings, and attempts to remedy problems through mediation where possible and litigation where necessary.. Archbishop Guillory, is Archbishop to the Archdiocese of North America – Unitarian Universalist Church.

BET Announces New Original Docu-series 'Vindicated', Hosted By Morris Chestnut BET Vindicated Highlights: Joyce Ann Brown’s Incarceration Affects Her Family Clip: Joyce Ann Brown’s family recalls the affect her incarceration had on each of them. Season 2, Episode 7 (08/03/2014)
At long last -- which is to say, close to 20 years since Joyce Ann Brown was freed from prison for a robbery and murder she did not commit -- the South Dallas woman's story will become a movie. So reports The Hollywood Reporter, which makes special note of the announced film as it marks the feature-film directorial debut of actor Brian Dennehy, who's co-writing with the producer of HBO's 61*.
For those who don't recall Brown's story, she provides a recap on the Mothers (Fathers) for the Advancement of Social Systems Inc. Web site. (MASS is an Atlanta Street-based nonprofit she founded in order to help newly released prisoners readjust to life on the outside.). Better still is the 1990 book Joyce Ann Brown: Justice Denied, published one year after a 60 Minutes feature on her case and conviction (based on a single eyewitness's testimony) helped set her free. After the jump is a three-minute-long June KXAS-Channel 5 profile, in which Brown compares her case to those of the wrongly convicted Dallas County men who've been freed using DNA evidence: "We have a long ways to go, but you can see the system changing."
