Civil Rights Groups And Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin’s Advocacy

There are many groups out there who tag a lot of support because of the service and support they offer for various groups.

These groups have stayed active and have not felt calloused in supporting the causes and advocacies that defend the human and civic rights of citizens. Learn more about Jim Larkin and Michael Lacey: http://www.laceyandlarkinfronterafund.org/about-lacey-larkin-frontera-fund/jim-larkin/

Some of these groups have even established a lot of landmark cases for the benefit of many groups in the society. Here are some of them:

  1. National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP).

The rights of the many people of color in the world did not end when slavery ended, and this is the ideal that NAACP wants to educate, inculcate, enlighten and promote in all the efforts that they do in their group since it founded the non-profit in 1909.

The team remains focused on making sure that all the rights of minority groups don’t go abandoned and ignored. It is social justice that this team is fighting, and will continue to fight.

  1. National Gay And Lesbian Tax Force

The group has been in existence since 1973 and right now remains to be the oldest group for transgender, lesbian, bisexual and gay people’s rights.

The organization helps in promoting equal rights for same sex couples and ending the discrimination against these genders.

  1. The Lacey and Larkin Frontera Fund is the non-profit that Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin founded to provide help for marginalized immigrants whose rights got entangled by state maltreatment.

The two journalists who grew the non-profit raised around $3.75 million to support the projects of the organization.

This money is the amount earned from the landmark case during the arrest last October 18, 2007, by Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio on the two journalists who were both illegally detained and taken from their respective houses at night.

The case favored the reporters, and after a reveal in the grand jury, the report shows that the county officer read the reporter’s notes, which was not something an official is privy to do.

There’s a lot of privacy intrusion revealed from the case, including the fact that the jury wanted to get the identities of the members of the board who read The New York Times, which was a violation of privacy.

Lacey and Larkin in response sued the county and finally prevailed in the Court of Appeals for the ninth circuit.

Right now the Lacey and Larkin carry out a lot of tasks in defending the rights of people whose civil, human and different migrants rights the authorities have defiled.

It is also the vision of the non-profit to protect people’s freedom of speech and active involvement in many protests, including protests in the “la linea Frontera,” which is the Mexican border.
