Lacey and Larkin Battling Violation of Human Rights

Mistreatment and abuse of the minority and disadvantaged people is currently a very common thing. Many organizations across the world have therefore been established not only to fight for the rights of the disadvantaged people but also to protect them from human rights abuses in the society.

The human rights groups are often either Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs) or Funds. The NGOs have played a major role in fighting for the rights of people.

Such groups advocate for human rights, civic rights, the rights of immigrants as well as environmental rights. Some of the common human right groups include the Lacey and Larkin Frontera Fund, the Coalition for Humane Immigrant Rights (CHILRA), the Amazon Watch and the ACLU Immigrations’ Rights Projects.

The Lacey and Larkin is a renowned fund organization that was established to help people belonging to the Hispanic community from racial hostilities and constant abuse of their human and civil rights throughout the state of Arizona.

The organization was founded by Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin who also founded Phoenix New Times. The two journalists founded the organization after being held in detention illegally by the Arizona Sheriff Department and later on set free after a court hearing.

Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin were arrested by police from the Arizona’s Sheriff Department for after reporting ongoing jury proceedings that vilified reporters who reported on Sheriff Arpaio.

They were caught and taken to court. Luckily, they won the case and were awarded $3.75 million which they used to fund the Lacey and Larkin Frontera Fund. The fund organization champions for civic participation and the freedom of speech for immigrants in Arizona.

The two journalists have been in the front lane in the fight for the rights of immigrants. They are also supporting the DACA program that allows immigrants to be documented and hired although the program is being opposed by Republicans. Mike and Kim are battling for a just community where there is equal justice regardless of the immigration status of other people.

The Coalition for Humane Immigrant Rights (CHILRA) is another common non-profit organization fighting for the rights of immigrants in the United States. The organization has its headquarters in Chicago. CHILRA was formed in 1986 when the Immigration Reform and Control Act was passed to be law.

The act made employing and hiring undocumented workers illegal, an act that allowed the immigrants to be abused and exploited by Americans. The human right group is in the front line of fighting for the rights of immigrant families as well as individuals.

The Coalition for Humane Immigrant Rights is fighting for an inclusive society that is inclusive of all the people living in Chicago and in the United States as a whole.
