Minority people within any society usually experience some type of mistreatment, injustice and inequality by the majority group of people. This has been a common experience for many African American people that live within the United States.
The Constitution of the United States is designed to protect African American people and their Civil Rights.
They also state that African American people are legal citizens of the United States and that they will receive equal protection under the law. These two core amendments form the basis of Civil Rights for African American people all over the United States.
While America suffered through the 50s and 60s to establish Civil Rights protections within the United States; the fight is still not over with maintaining these rights. The racial climate has improved for many black people.
However, many people within this minority group still deal with racial injustice, prejudice and police brutality. American people must figure out a way to end racial injustice and tension.
Jim Larkin and Michael Lacey had created the Frontera Fund to help people to maintain their civil rights within the U.S. This fund is used to provide financial support to organizations that have been created to carry out this mission.
Larkin and Lacey are the founders of the Phoenix New Times. In 2007 they were both wrongly imprisoned by a corrupt sheriff from Arizona.
Their wrongful imprisonment helped them to receive a substantial financial reward from the state of Arizona. They took this money and used it to create a fund that would support organizations who fight for migrant and human rights in Arizona and within the rest of the United States.
This fund is also used to support groups that fight for Civil Rights. The Frontera Fund helps many organizations to continue to aid African American people in their plight to gain acceptance and legal protection within America.
