Sometimes the minority have no one to listen to them. They do not get a chance to air their opinions and see that they get what they deserve. This is what has triggered the foundation of humanitarian groups. These groups fight to achieve and implement these rights at local, regional, national or international standard depending on their ability. Some of these groups include;
Lacey and Frontera Fund
The Frontera Fund was formed by the co-founders of ”The New Times”, Lacey and Larkin. They had fought many battles and won, long before they established the Frontera Fund.
They formed the Frontera Fund using the cash that they received as compensation in the case of the sheriff.
The two journalists did the unthinkable. They published the evil deeds of the sheriff on the first page of the New Times. Being a respected man of the society, this was a big step to take that needed confidence.
The sheriff arrested them and took them to an unknown location at midnight. They were however released in less than 24 hours due to the public protests.
The Frontera Fund offers financial help to the Arizona Humanitarian groups that share a common goal with them. The Frontera Fund is currently fighting to dismiss the closing down of the DACA foundation.

Coalition for Humane Immigrant Rights (CHIRLA)
The CHIRLA grouped was formed as a response to the 1986 Act. This Act illegalized the employment of undocumented citizens. This was going to give room for labor abuse and exploitation.
The CHIRLA group works using the leverage of the crowd. This means educating the public and changing their opinion. Later they use the public to change the policies of the human, civil and immigrant’s right.
They are in the lead of fighting for immigrants’ rights in California. Through their organization, the lives of women, children, and immigrant families have greatly improved.
American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU)
