In a world where there is so much hate and so much crime, something as simple as a civil rights violation seems so minor. The problem is however that it is more than just one individual who is experiencing the violation of their civil rights.
Civil rights is awarded to all individuals and not just one color or ethnic background. People of all colors have civil rights however it is more commonly found to have the civil rights of people who are ethnic or of a different color that have experienced the violation.
The rise of racial profiling is what is allowing for more civil rights to be violated. The perception of the immigrants entering the country being of one solid state that helps to make racial profiling so profound. The problem is that not all individuals who are immigrants or migrants are of bad blood.
This problem is what children are being taught by their parents and this is enabling the problem to persist. Read more: Michael Larcey | Crunchbase
If you have not experienced your own civil rights violation, you do not know how important it is to have it upheld. The individuals who have experienced a civil right violation are often the ones who allow for it to continue because they feel as though they have no rights. This perception is what keeps more people sitting in jails and detention centers when they have rights that need to be upheld.
Jim Larkin and Michael Lacey have started the Larkin & Lacey Frontera Fund. This fund was established by money that the two won from a settlement in a court proceedings where their own rights were violated.
In late of 2007, Michael and Jim were awoke in the middle of the night by the sheriffs department and hauled away to be charged. This is where their rights were violated. With their business, as co-founders of the Phoenix New Times and Village Voice Media group, they used their first amendment right to bring a lawsuit against the county.
By order of a court of appeals, the two were found to be entitled to the money. They took this money and established the foundation in hopes to help others who are suffering from the misuse of the judgement system.
The judgement system is supposed to be a fair and equal system however in many cases, this is far from the truth. There are a number of people who have come into the United States with the hopes of bettering their lives only to sit inside detention centers while they wait to learn their fate. It is these people who suffer the most from the civil rights violations.
It is believed that because they were not born in the United States that they are not entitled to civil rights however it is their human nature and human right that entitles them to this protection. With the help of advocacy groups out there, the hope is that the Larkin & Lacey Frontera Fund can help more individuals who are experiencing their rights being violated.
