To really handle and combat any injustices done against undocumented immigrants in the state of Arizona, grass-root political organizations have to network with establishments and the community they seek to serve. And, at times, businesses with a socially progressive conscious are in a position to lend substantial aid to NGO’s (Nongovernmental Organization) and other groups of individuals with funds.
There are several different organizations in Arizona that focus on a particular aspect of life as an immigrant, in that state. The Arizona Dream Act Coalition just happens to be one of several benefactors of the Lacey and Larkin Frontera Fund. This is a good deal as the ADAC has a very inclusive field of service and a vulnerable, yet hearty, clientele.
The ADAC has a most precious vision indeed, where undocumented immigrants, along with the social and familial relationships they often depend on, can live in piece free from unlawful persecution. To this end, they have a mission statement that promotes and promises advocacy for the recognition of civil rights reserved for immigration. Read more: Jim Larkin | Twitter and Jim Larkin |LinkedIn
Their plan of action is to see political change through the influencing of leadership on the state and possibly federal level. And, they are not the only organization on the Lacey and Larkin Frontera Fund support list, which boasts names like the Arizona ACLU.
Focusing on the Frontera Fund, the support they give to organizations really comes complements of sheriff Joe Arpaio and a certain unlawful detainment, followed by vindicated day in court. It turns out that particular day in court, and the testimony held within, came with an award worth multi millions in USD (United States Dollars) and bragging rights for good guys Lacey and Larkin. However, the fight for civil rights still rages on and requires constant vigilance from members of a community with many walks of life.
On top of all of the support the Frontera Fund provides across the state, it is also a hub of information and a headquarters for whistle blowing unfair play in government, as needed. Stories from the latest news and features focuses such as Trump Watch give a rich and layered value to everything the it does.
Really, this kind of service and awareness raising in not new to Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin, and they are confounders of Phoenix New Times and Village Voice Media. The Fund let’s them help others to do what they themselves do, in their own way.
