There are many organizations around the world that strive to fight for the rights of the minorities. Most of these groups were born upon realizing that the world was continuously turning a blind eye to crime and suffering that were being perpetrated against the immigrants and the minorities in most countries.
Some of these organizations include Lacey and Larkin Frontera Fund, the Advocate for Human Rights, the American Civil Liberties Union and Coalition for Humane Immigrants. All these organizations, together with others, have one thing in common, giving hope to the oppressed by fighting for their rights and dignity.
I cannot mention the organizations and advocacy groups that fight for the rights of the minorities and forget to mention about Lacey and Larkin Frontera Fund. This is the fund that has been referred to as the mother of funds.

This is because the fund is behind the funding of advocacy groups that are on the forefront of fighting for the rights of the minorities. Fighting for the rights of the minorities includes going against the authorities and powerful individuals who wield power in government.
Such a struggle need not only the will to fight by the power of the finance too. With this in mind, Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin decided to come up with a fund that will financially help other groups that are involved in fighting for the rights of the oppressed.
The story behind Lacey and Larkin Frontera Fund is that of daring, zeal and the will of fighting on from two journalists who never let intimidation deter them from fighting for what is right.
As early as from 1970, Michael and Jim were operating the Voice Media which was the main mouthpiece of condemning violations of human rights as well as exposing the forces behind the abuse of the minorities.
One person who felt the power of the two journalists was Sheriff Joe Arpaio, who the Michael and Jim came to find out that he was a brutal force behind the mistreating of the minorities in jail, racially categorizing the minority groups as well as using his power to mistreat others. The two ran a story about him.
This led to their arrest and jailing. They were later released, sued the county, won the case and awarded 3.75 million, the money that they used to set up Lacey and Larkin Frontera Fund.
The Advocate for Human Rights is another group that spearheads the world’s human rights. The movement is an independent, impartial as well as non-profit organization that aims at creating, fighting and upholding both lasting and comprehensive as well as all-inclusive change both locally and globally.

The Advocate for Human Rights also engages the public, policymakers as well as children on issues touching on the universal rights of the people.
