The Larkin and Lacey Frontera Fund and The Need for Social Change in America

We may have all the conveniences and modern tech we have today, but that doesn’t mean that we are now all set and all the basics in our life and society are now covered. We’re still so far from the ideal world that we want, and we still have a lot to do along the lines of changing the way we deal with our human beings in our society today.

This is the reason why so many groups are popping these days to offer the kind of solutions that the world needs to arrive at the change and transformation it wants for a better society.

Immigrants Groups

One area in the society today that have a lot to do with the changes that the people need is in the sector of immigration rights. With all the atrocities, abuses and various issues that the world experiences, it just seems that the rise of non-profit groups that advocate for change is what’s fuelling the traction and movement towards a better society that we’re still not in.

One of the big social groups today that offer the kind of protection of the civil liberties of the immigrants is the Black Alliance for Just Immigration.

This non-profit is a passionate activist and social change group that offers the right education, awareness programs and enlightenment for the African American citizens and black immigrant communities in the country. What the group advocates is the prevention of the various racial, social and economic deprivations that the black communities experience.

The Council on American-Islamic Relations

The muslim communities in America are experiencing a sudden change and shift in the way that they treat the muslim communities today.

CUNY Clear

One powerful organization right now, too, that offers the kind of educational activities for people to understand the rights of Muslims in various communities is CUNY Clear. This community is targeting towards the law-enforcement programs that help enlighten people on how to treat the Muslims in the United States today.

Immigrant Defense Project

What this non-profit program offers to the world is the advocacy and litigation programs that help educate the society on why there is a need to act on the changes on how to treat the immigrants today.

The Lacey and Larkin Frontera Fund

Lacey and Larkin Frontera Fund is the project of Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin, which are the co-founders of Phoenix New Times, as well as Village Voice Media.

The money that the two journalists received from the settlement case that they filed against Sheriff Joe Arpaio, which is about $3 million, has now been used to support the advocacies that relate to migrant rights groups in the Arizona area.

The Frontera Fund is now active in making sure that the human, civil and migrant rights of the immigrants living in the United States will not be deprived of their rights, including their right to freedom of speech and the complete participation of these people in the business affairs in Arizona, which would go so far towards the Mexican border.
