The Stand to Preserve Human Rights

Human Rights

Humanity is at a place where it has to redefine itself. From Children’s rights being violated to having to confirm to ourselves that lives do matter through the establishment of groups like Black lives Matters. We seem to be at a crossroad. But there is always hope, which is brought in by groups like The Advocates for Human Rights. This group offers free legal services to people who do not earn much.

Their services are offered in Minnesota, North Dakota and also South Dakota. They offer assistance to people detained by the immigration authority.

They defend women rights and much more. This group was started in 1984 and its executive director is Ms. Robin Phillip. Some group funds such as the Larkin and Lacey Frontera fund have come into place, to assist groups that are fighting for human rights.

About the Larkin & Lacey Frontera Fund

This fund was started by Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin, who are journalists by profession. Michael and Jim are known as the founders of Phoenix New Times and Village Voice Media. The two friends and colleagues have put into good use the money arising from their arrest by funding migrant rights organizations.

They received a settlement of $3.75 million in 2007. The Larkin & Lacey Frontera fund will be assisting groups that fight for human, civil and migrants’ rights. They will also be supporting groups that fight for the right of speech in Arizona. Their contribution will go a long way in giving a much-desired boost to these groups.

The fund is closely associated with a group known as the Border Angels, which is a non-profit charity group. The group is based in San-Diego and was founded in 1986 by Enrique Morones. The group is involved in immigration, where they fight for various reforms and try to curb immigrants’ deaths as they cross the border.

They seek to restore justice and do away with the false believe that people have about the immigrants who move to the U.S.A. through the border. So through funds such as the Larkin & Lacey Frontera Fund, they receive not only moral support but also financial support.

Final Note

The groups arising to fight for human rights are increasing daily. Therefore it takes the emergence of fund groups such as the Larkin & Lacey Frontera to come in and through their funding programs, impact the society.
