The Lacey and Larkin Frontera Fund

Numerous groups all over the world are united by a common cause: to advocate for human, civil and immigrant rights. The groups work to maintain a civil society as per the international standards. Additionally, they support the law where they feel it has been compromised.

The Advocates for Human Rights is one of the most active groups working in conjunction with the World’s Human Rights Movement.

The organization was founded in 1983 with the aim of creating and maintaining a complete, lasting and all-inclusive solution for the problems that surround the people in areas such as violation of human rights and abuse of the rights of children.

Additionally, the non-profit organization advocates for refugees and immigrants who wish to get aid, training and asylum. Where there exists gaps in law, the Advocates for Human Rights push for legal changes in order to have sober legislation.

The Coalition for Humane Immigrant Rights, widely known as CHIRLA, is another leading warrior of immigrant rights. The California based organization also fights for the rights of movement, especially in country borders where mobility may be limited.

CHIRLA was set up following the passing of the United States’ act of 1986, the Immigration Reform and Control Act, to create a society that allows inclusion of everyone without discrimination of immigrants.

This was to stop the then ongoing employment of undocumented employees. This was abuse of workers. The Coalition for Humane Immigrant Rights also amplifies the voice and opinion of the public.

ACLU (American Civil Liberties Union) was set up with its efforts funnelled towards enforcing and enhancing civil rights for immigrants. The advocate group also fights against public and private discrimination. ACLU has been involved in many of the recent legal battles focusing on fixing the legal challenges that exist.

Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin, who have spent most of their lifetimes fighting for human rights, held hands and founded the Lacey and Larkin Frontera Fund. This was in conjunction with Village Voice media and the Phoenix New Times. Their efforts are dedicated towards funding migrant activities in Arizona.

The advocacy group was founded after Lacey and Larkin run a story that exposed the grand jury’s activities that were seeking for notes written about Sherriff Joe Arpaio.

The pioneers of the foundation sued the county and were given $3.75 million after they won the case. The money was used to support civil, human and migrant rights.
