Even in today’s modern, civilized, world discrimination continues to rear its ugly head. In countries around the world people are being denied their civil, human and workers’ rights because of their race, country of origin or their immigration status. These people are subjected to human rights abuses, racial profiling, low pay, harsh treatment and illegal incarceration.
The silence of the suffers and the lack of information about the abuses taking place help these atrocities to continue. Fortunately, there is a growing number of individuals and organizations that are drawing attention to and combating these abuses. Learn more about Jim Larkin and Michael Lacey: http://www.laceyandlarkinfronterafund.org/about-lacey-larkin-frontera-fund/michael-lacey/ and http://www.bizjournals.com/phoenix/potmsearch/detail/submission/6427818/Michael_Lacey
There are groups all over the world that are advocating for the civil rights, human rights and migrant rights of these oppressed populations. Their goal is to get more people to rise up and set right the systematic injustices that are taking place in communities all around the world.
These advocacy groups seek to empower the victims that are being forced to endure indignity and suffering at the hands of cruel, exploitative and greedy people. The advocacy groups are calling for the masses to end this oppression, demand a more just society and work together to ensure the rule of law is reinforced and all people are treated fairly.
Organizations in the United States like the American Civil Liberties Union, the Coalition for Humane Immigrant Rights of Los Angeles and the Lacey and Larkin Frontera Fund are in the forefront of the battle to expose human rights violations and help to ensure the justice system is used to protect all people. These organizations have been working in close collaboration with a number of groups to force the federal, state and local government to address human, civil and migrants rights abuses and end discrimination in the United States on all level.
One state in which many immigrants are being discriminated against, criminalized, abused and exploited is Arizona. To address the serious problems related to human, civil and migrant rights violations there, the Lacey and Larkin Frontera Fund was created.
Founded by journalists Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin, the publishers of Village Voice Media and the Phoenix New Times, the Lacey and Larkin Frontera Fund was created with the settlement money the two men got from the case they brought against
Maricopa County and Sheriff Joe Arpaio for false arrest and other violations.
In October 2007, a group of armed deputies led by Sheriff Joe Arpaio arrested Lacey and Larkin on trumped up charges. In fact, the sheriff was upset because the journalists published stories detailing the many ways he has violated the rights of immigrants and African-Americans in Arizona. When Lacey and Larkin refused to reveal the sources of their stories and a list of people that read the stories online, Sheriff Arpaio had them arrested. Lacey and Larkin sued and were awarded $3.75 million.
The journalists used the money to create a fund to support people fighting for human, civil and migrants’ rights in Arizona. The money has been very helpful in providing legal support.
