Human rights infringement is an issue that still plagues the 21st-century society. Some may look away from these incidents as they happen while others will bring them up with the hope of addressing them. Human rights activist groups have been in existence over the past several years. The primary purpose of these groups is to bring about equal treatment of persons both at home and in the workplace.
Over the years, these activist groups have become increasingly vocal on the issue of infringement of both a human right and civil rights. The primary aim of human rights groups is the sensitization of the public onto why they need to adhere to human and civil rights.
These organizations and groups promote the humane treatment of people while also ensuring that perpetrators who abuse these are punished as per the constitutions of the various jurisdictions these offenses occur.

Lacey & Larkin Frontera Fund
Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin are American journalists from Phoenix, Arizona. The two were arrested under the order of the local county sheriff. The reason for their arrest was publishing a story on the local daily about the sheriff. It is known that the Maricopa sheriff had been racially profiling citizens of Arizona.
Following their arrest, the Larkin and Lacey’s constitutional first amendment rights were violated, so they sued the county. After winning the case, they were offered a settlement close to $4 million. Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin have used their settlement to start up a fund that will be used for addressing human and immigrant rights across the state of Arizona.
