Unitarian Universalist

Refugee and Immigrant Services and Education (UURISE)

This organization is a non-profit that was founded in 2007 with the goal of helping immigrants get legal counsel if it is needed. UURISE has a network that stretches across the United States and provides legal services to large groups of people at little to no cost them.

Lacey and Larkin are very active on a state and local level, working to provide education along with real life examples of people’s struggles. They offer workshops and seminars aimed at giving people the tools to be able to help themselves by knowing their rights, along with the naturalization process. UURISE also provides detention visitation programs, witness and advocacy, and safety planning.

No More Deaths

No More Deaths is a humanitarian movement that was started in 2004 and is based in Souther Arizona. This organization’s primary goal is to prevent the deaths of people crossing the desert to get across the United States-Mexico Border.

This is a volunteer based organization who are bound together by a common mission and their faith. The volunteers hike the remote trails and leave water, clothing, food, blankets, and provide emergency medical care to anyone they come across who needs it.

Lacey & Larkin Frontera Fund

The Lacey and Larkin Fontera Fund was founded by Michael and Jim in 2007 after a harrowing experience they had when they were taken from their homes in the middle of the night illegally detained by the local sheriff’s department.

The money they received from the settlement went to fund this organization. The Lacey and Larkin Frontera Fund is using its resources to help further immigrant rights throughout Arizona. They also advocate for freedom of speech and participation from the local communities.

All of these groups have the same core values and are all fighting for civil, human and migrant rights. They can only keep fighting with support from their local communities and donations they raise from fundraising and donations. They will keep doing good and changing the way a vulnerable group of people are represented and protected for decades to come.
