Additionally, these organizations systematize mass awareness campaigns to inform and educate people around the world about the increasing number of victims of human rights violations. They also identify the culprits of these evil acts and call for mass action to stop the evil doings.

A considerable number of these groups center their attention on the lack of community development and health, basic human rights protection, and environmental and economic justice.

Moreover, these groups advocate for local communities’ rights protection and shine light on global occurrences that require justice for true peace to prevail.

Human rights organizations pursue these objectives by researching problems, undertaking studies, and collecting documents. Additionally, they organize seminars, symposia, and conferences where they broadcast information and call on other international, national, and local groups concerned about peoples’ and human rights to work with them to produce change.

Larkin & Lacey Frontera Fund

The Larkin & Lacey Frontera Fund is a US-based organization deeply involved in advocating for human rights. Jim Larkin and Michael Lacey, two journalists that vehemently support migrant rights groups in Arizona founded the Larkin & Lacey Frontera Fund.

The Larkin & Lacey Frontera Fund provides resources for groups in Arizona involved in fighting for the rights of migrants among other aspects of the struggle for civil and human rights.

This organization was crafted with a donation of $3.75 million from Jim Larkin and Michael Lacey. The co-founders of both the Phoenix New Times and Village Voice Media, Larkin and Lacey received the funds after suing Maricopa County. The duo was arrested illegally because they published articles that pointed out the evil deeds of Sherriff Arpaio Joe.

In their articles, Lacey and Larkin detailed Sherriff Arpaio’s atrocities and the financial irregularities of his office. Moreover, they publicized the retaliatory abuses of power, rampant mismanagement, illegal detention, deaths, and prosecution of Latinos, mistreatment and substandard health conditions in jails.
