Regardless of their economic or political opinions, it is the role of a state or a country to protect the rights of its residents.To protect these fundamental rights of a person several organizations have been formed to safeguard this right. A good example of this Human rights watchdog is the Lacey and Larkin Frontera Fund.
About Lacey And Larkin Frontera Fund
This organization was formed by Mike Lacey and Jim Larkin after their arrest by the sheriff of Maricopa County Mr. Joe Arpaio. Their detention was because of publishing about the existence of a grand jury that sought reporter’s notes on the articles covering the sheriff. So ruthless was the grand jury that they demand the identity of the residence who had read the article online that involved the lawman. Because of this Lacey and Larkin sued the county and won the case.
Their experience in the First Amendment act was the main reason for their victory in the case. They were awarded $3.75 million settlement which they dedicated the entire amount of money to fund migrant right Organization in the Arizona state. Larkin and Lacey support groups that advocate for human, civil and migrants’ rights as well as public participation and freedom of speech throughout Arizona and on the Mexican Border.
