There are thousands of groups trying to make a positive change in the world focusing on issues such as: equal access to education, human trafficking, forest preservation, animal protection, and women’s rights.
Let’s talk about the Lacey & Larkin Frontera Fund. These two have taken a $3.7 million settlement to fund many different migrant rights organizations across Arizona. Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin where arrested at their homes late at night and thrown in jail. This all happened because they revealed a grand jury’s request to obtain reporters’ notes about the sheriff that arrested them. Even the identities of the people that read the articles about Sheriff Joe Arpaio online.
Lacey and Larkin have spent their careers defending their First Amendment rights. They ended up suing the county and won their case in the United States Court of Appeals for the ninth court. As activists themselves the Lacey and Larkin Fund supports all kinds of advocate groups that thrive with their aid.
The Advocates for Human Rights is another great group that has been helping people since 1983. Their goal is to aid in victim rehabilitation. They try to help them get their lives back on track in the form of employment, asylum, and legal advice.
The Advocates hold governments accountable when they violate basic human rights. They are striving to see a world where people have equality and no longer have to walk around in fear.

All these different Advocacy groups want the same thing. They are all aiming to change the world for the better. A world that all people are proud to call home and work together for the common good. It’s a long hard road to reach this outcome but they’re not giving up. These groups remind us all of the need to lend a helping hand, to care of each other.
Mike Lacey & Jim Larkin are doing something truly amazing today. They are providing a vital resource to these groups so they can continue their efforts to preserve civil, human and migrant rights. It’s important to keep the governments in check and make sure they really have the best interest of the people in mind. The groups they support are constantly working to improve the lives of people all over the world, working day and night.
There are many groups advocating for civil, human and migrant rights but they need support and that’s where people like Lacey & Larkin come in. They dedicate their lives and money to making the world a better place for all people.
