Lacey And Larkin Frontera Fund’s Continued Advocacy for Human and Civil Rights

Protection of human rights is a paramount concern that needs a considerable address. Therefore, numerous groups exist that advocate for immigrant, human, and civil rights.

The institutions fight for the implementation of international standards regarding human rights that could empower the rule of law and uphold civilization. The groups include Lacey and Larkin Frontera Fund, Coalition for Humane Immigrant Rights (CHIRLA), The Advocates for Human Rights, and American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU).

The American Civil Liberties Union

ACLU fights for immigrant rights. It is a project that aims at enforcing and expanding civil rights and civil liberties of immigrants. The organization also dedicates itself towards fighting discrimination from both the private and public sectors, against the immigrants. For more than two decades, the group has been advocating for the protection of freedoms and rights of immigrants through public outreach, promotion, and targeted impact proceedings.

ACLU has been at the forefront of almost all the significant legal proceedings on behalf of the immigrants. The group focuses on challenging the policies that deny access to immigrants to the justice system.

Also, they question the laws that discriminate along nationality lines and allow indefinite execution and mandatory confinement.

ACLU works relentlessly in pursuit of liberty for everyone throughout the country as promised by the constitution. ACLU defends enshrined constitutional rights.

The group works in communities, legislatures, and courts. The team currently has over 1.6 million idealists and employs approximately 300 attorneys with numerous others as volunteers. ACLU fights for rights such as freedom of privacy, speech, and religion, despite the popularity of the cause. ACLU has an unparalleled dedication to its principles.

Lacey and Larkin Frontera Fund

Jim Larkin and his counterpart Michael Lacey were confident and reputable journalists that made a report on a county sheriff. The report revealed the existence of proceedings that required reporters’ notes regarding the story coverage of the sheriff. Read more: Michael Lacey | Twitter and Jim Larkin | Angel.co

The jury also demanded information about the citizens that read online stories about the sheriff. The two reporters got arrested one night at their homes by the anti-immigrant sheriff.

In a bid to defend their first amendment rights, the two reporters sued the local authority in which they ultimately prevailed. An investigation revealed that the warrants for their arrest were from a vengeful prosecutor and counterfeit. Larkin and Lacey received a settlement fund of 3.75 million dollars for wrongful detention.

The two started the Lacey and Larkin Frontera Fund using the settlement money in 2014. The Frontera Fund supports other organizations that advocate for migrant, human, and civil rights throughout Arizona.

Larkin and Lacey are from humble beginnings which explains their desire to help other people fight for their rights. For example, Michael’s father was a construction worker. The foundation supported the Hispanic community when there was an extreme disregard for human and civil rights in Arizona.

The fund continues to help other organizations such as Arizona Justice that advocates for indigent Arizona inmates’ rights. The Lacey and Larkin’s group works alongside Border Angels to prevent immigrant deaths at the Mexican border and to fight for immigration reforms.
