Instances of criminal injustice against migrants are common and real all over the United States. A justice system that treats everyone equal has been the quest and desire for several organizations.
By standing up for civil, human and migrant rights, these groups strive to expose and investigate human right violations and injustices. Having in mind that everyone deserves equality and justice, communities are empowered and the civil society promoted.

Among the champions for civil human and migrant rights is a US attorney, Heather Hamel. She is the founder of a non-profit organization that targets the marginalized individuals and, its main purpose is to set right the justice system.
Heather works hand in hand with numerous attorneys and human rights activists. Their main agenda is to stop human rights abuse and racial discrimination. By exposing the increased profiling of more black people per capita, less incidents of the same case occur.
Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin, re-known human rights chaperons are co-founders of Village Voice Media and Phoenix New Times. They are among the many victims of civil human rights discrimination in Arizona. After first hand encounter with injustice, Lacey and Larkin have sworn to support organizations and groups through their frontera fund. The fact that mere freedom of speech was being compromised pushed them to the extent of even suing the county. Their organization raises money to support migrant rights groups in Arizona
Michael’s and Jim’s case is just one out of the many wrongful arrests in Arizona. The center for Neighbourhood Leadership has partnered with Justice to ensure that they give solutions which its effectiveness will end families separations and give an assurance of better living for individuals. The funds that support this initiatives are being channelled to offer quality health care, education, road and general community center development.
Being persistent in championing for these rights is what makes it happen. For instance in Michael Lacey’s and Jim Larkin’s incident, if they had been quiet about their wrong arrest and jailing, then the issue could remain unaccounted for.
Their boldness to expose the people behind it attracted public attention and consequently justice prevailed. The denial of freedom of expression in Arizona needed a solution and the two journalists made it happen. They didn’t let the government abuse power by pushing citizens around.
There are organizations all over the world that won’t rest until justice has been served. Apart from those mentioned above, we have others like the Fair Test which strives to make sure that students’ and workers’ evaluation is just,open and academically sound. All people’s rights matter the same way no human being’s life matters more than the other.
