The war against social injustice has been going on and on worldwide since time immemorial, with the minority getting the stricter end of the bargain. This issue has consequently led to the rise of advocacy groups to eradicate the injustice and give a voice to the weak. With the help of non-profitable organisations, these groups promote civil, human and migrant rights through various means such as the media, courts, immigration and shelters.
Some of these groups include:
- Lacey & Larkin Frontera Funds
- Arizona Project Justice
- The Coalition for Humane Immigrant Rights
- Amazon Watch
- The Advocates for Human Rights
Lacey & Larkin Frontera Funds
Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin are also the co-founders of Phoenix New York Times dedicates their time to funding organisations that fight for human, civil and migrant rights as well as freedom of speech and public response throughout Arizona and the Mexican border.
This process was made possible after the $3.75 million settlement awarded to them after they won an appeal they filed against the county after their unlawful arrest and detention by Maricopa County Sherriff, Joe Arpaio. The arrest came after the two reporters did a story on the Sherriff. Being reporters who fought for the implementation of the First Amendment Rights, they did what they knew best, fight for justice.
