Thousands of companies around the world are fighting for civil, human and social rights of people. There are also hundreds of thousands of people who are refugees or migrants in the countries they leave in including the United States.
In Arizona, the number of immigrants detained at the centers by the Homeland Security Department is continually growing. Most of the people who are detained here have no money to seek legal assistance as much as their cases may be strong enough for a fight. The Florence Project has bridged this gap and is offering free legal services to these detainees.

The Project is also offering social services to the same detainees. Some of the social services include taking care of the mentally ill and those who have been victims of domestic violence, taking care of the critically ill and survivors of any form of torture among others. They also provide these detainees with relevant information for their survival.
Another humanitarian organization that has stepped up in Arizona is the No More Deaths. It was founded in 2004 and has been fighting to stop the deaths of immigrants as well as teaching faith based principles in the community.
They try to meet their goals through the provision of food, water, medical care, shelter and other supplies for the migrants in the Southern Camp. They also document any cases related to the abuse of the migrants in the arms of any government authorities in America.
No More Deaths also assists the migrants who have lost any of their property during arrests recover it and also go a step higher in assisting deported Mexican migrants. They have committed their time and lives to assisting migrants through encouragement and offering direct aid.
The Lacey and Larkin Frontera Fund is also an initiative that is committed to fighting for the rights of the migrants. This initiative was conceived by Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin after they won a huge settlement after their unlawful arrest.
The Frontera Fund aims at promoting the rights of migrants through supporting other initiative and organizations that fight and promote civil and human rights of the migrants in Arizona. They also support any civic act movements and freedom of speech in Arizona and along the Mexican border. Read more: Village Voice Media | Wikipedia and Phoenix New Time
The Lacey and Larking Frontera Fund has been a huge boost to the migrants’ rights in the United States. One of the organizations they have supported is DACA.
DACA is an organization that protects Hispanic migrants who have the required qualifications from being deported back to their countries. They do this through offering the necessary paper work in a renewable two-year program
The Frontera Fund mainly provides the necessary documentation to assist the members of DACA fight for a more permanent solution for the immigrants who are at the risk of deportation if DACA is nullified by the Trump Government.
The Frontera Fund has been beneficial to many organizations to date. Michael and Jim’s arrest led to the formation of a noble cause that is helping empower and sustain the migrants in the United States.
