Demanding for Respect of Human Rights with Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin

There is a great concern, confusion, and fear amongst immigrant communities, especially after the recent United States election. The fear of deportation, losing what one has built over the years, and probably becoming a refugee once again is evident amongst immigrants and minority groups in the United States.

Many groups and institutions have come forward to express their disapproval on the U.S. President’s stand on the issue of the immigrants. Most of this human, civil and immigrant reform groups consider the move inhumane and total disregard for the rights, and freedom of movement of the people. Hence, they have come forward to offer their support and solidarity to the affected individuals.

The Larkin & Lacey Frontera Fund

The Larkin & Lacey Frontera Fund is one of the institutions that have created a broad line of legal and political defense for the immigrant and human rights as well. They have built a strong movement for economic and social justice for all. Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin are the co-founders of the Village Voice Media and Phoenix New Times.

Southern Border Communities Coalition

Southern Border Communities Coalition was formed in 2011 and has unified over 60 organizations in CA, San Diego, and Texas. It was founded to bring accountability and proper enforcement of border practices in the United States.

The United States’ government does an excellent job of providing adequate resources in the broader patrol. However, there was no appropriate oversight of the border policies, which makes easier for the boundary communities to breach them. The brunt of these policies adversely affects the resident’s human rights, their businesses, international relations, and the environment.

The founders of the Southern Border Communities Coalition saw it necessary to bring sanity to the borders and restore humane and rational reform policies, prevent loss of life and restore lost human dignity. These groups are sources of strength and affirmation to the immigrants and other individuals whose rights have been violated; hope is not lost.
