The Larkin & Lacey Frontera Fund:
This is an organization that was formed in 2013 using the money Jim and Michael were paid by the county of Maricopa. This money was paid after the long court case they had for their wrongful and unfair arrest in 2007.
The Organization was formed by the co-founders of Village Voice Media and Phoenix New Times, Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin.
The Organization was started with the aim of upholding the rights of the migrants throughout Arizona. The Frontera Fund supports advocates of human, immigrants and civil rights.
They also dedicate their support to any supporters of the freedom of speech and civic rights. They have so far participated in various organizations to uphold and fight for the rights of immigrants in the United States.

These people are mostly refugees, migrants and the poor in the society. They also take time in addressing their emotional issues and helping the people they serve to cope with emotional stress.
Phoenix Allies for Community Health is run by volunteers. They educate the people they serve on various health care issues as they attend to them.
They encourage the immigrants and people with no legal documents to visit them for medical checkups in order to ensure proper prevention and medical attention is offered depending on different needs.
Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, DACA:
DACA is a program that offers support to immigrants who do not have the proper paperwork to work or study in the United States.
The program operates as a two-year renewable contract where eligible migrants are given the proper paperwork to work or join a school in the U.S. DACA has assisted lots of immigrants to achieve their dreams through proper education and working opportunities.
With the recent threat of shutting down this program, by the Trump Government, DACA has joined hands with different Organizations to fight for residency of the eligible immigrants. This will be a dream come true for the beneficiaries of DACA when they win this.
Arizona Justice Project:
Sometimes people are wrongfully convicted of crimes but since they cannot afford good lawyers and advocates to represent them, they stay in prison for long periods of time.
Arizona Justice Project loops this gap. They do this by representing the wrongfully convicted people who do not deserve to be in prison.
They have partnered with various experts in the law and investigation industries who help them in achieving their goals by offering information, witnesses, and evidence to support the cases of the wrongfully detained people.
