When it comes to human, civil, and migrant rights there are groups advocating to make positive changes. Many different individuals along with institutions and even governments clearly have no cares, concerns, or regards for the rights of these individuals.
If not for the advocacy work of certain human rights groups and individuals who stand up for those rights that disregard from these entities would continue to abuse human, civil, and migrant rights. Advocacy groups that bring the necessary changes to the table to make fundamental differences do so through volunteer work, media awareness, and campaigns. This is mall made possible by outside funding from donors.
People Are Out There Watching
Amnesty International is a well-known Human Rights group dedicated to the perseverance of ending and preventing human rights abuse from occurring globally. An organization such as Amnesty International relies heavily on contributions from others.
Individuals such as Jim Larkin and Michael Lacey of the Lacey and Larkin Frontera Fund are excellent examples of where groups like Amnesty International and others find funding for their projects and campaigns.
Who Are Micheal Lacey And Jim Larkin
Jim Larkin and Michael Lacey were too strong voices behind Village Voice media. On October 18th, 2007 under the authority of one of “Americas Toughest” proclaimed Sheriff’s, Sheriff Joe Arpaio, these two individuals were arrested.
The sheriff was hot about the duo exposing misconduct and inappropriate behavior on the sheriff’s behalf. Abusing human rights and having his role in fostering anti-Mexican fear-mongering in Arizona, Sheriff Joe Arpaio became exposed to the public.
Ultimately Lacey and Larkin ended up winning their case in which they were awarded a 3.7 million settlement. This 3.7 million dollar settlement of taxpayers money was paid by Maricopa County back in 2013.
This victory shows others that they can and will be held accountable for their actions. Both Larkin and Lacey had a vision and these finances were going to turn this Vision into a reality. A reality that became known as the Larkin and Lacey Frontera Fund.
