There are many people within the United States who are questioning the direction of the federal government, especially as the new Trump Administration has begun its first full term.
Some of the growing Muslim populations are particularly questioning the constitutional value of travel ban that has riveted the nation’s attention.
The People Power organization was established to protect those who may have their constitutional rights discriminated against through the enabling of the United States travel ban. People Power is a grass roots organization that was assembled to engage American citizens to take action in ways that will bring a voice to the current Administration to defend civil liberties.
Working alongside the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), the organization has assembled volunteers within local communities to become involved to affirm the values of Americans.
The People Power organization has enlisted thousands of volunteers that support the idea of American standards, values, equality and respect of all humans. In solidarity, supporters have united a cause that goes well-beyond just civil liberties, but also human decency. Read more: Michael Larcey | Crunchbase
The ACLU has built a reputation on exercising its powerful knowledge of the U.S. constitution. The organization has grown beyond measure of its 98 year history. With over 300 U.S. Attorneys and thousands of other legal representatives throughout all ACLU charters across the nation, the civil rights organization has the power to fight injustices. The ACLU’s foundation is centered on the U.S. constitution and does not take a stand on their matter of defense, other than the laws abiding the nation.
In 2007, Michael Lacy and Jim Larkin founded the Larkin and Lacey Frontera Fund with the mission of providing resources to the citizens of Arizona for knowing their constitutional rights. Since the fund was created, with a $2 million initial donation by Michael Lacy and Jim Larkin, there have been thousands of people who’ve benefited from the information available and for countless issues.
Through the organization, Arizonians are able to receive up to date and trusted resource information regarding the Trump Administration with issues regarding immigration changes. The fund provides an array of information to help citizens know their rights as well as stay informed of the continuous and ongoing process.
Both Michael and Jim are journalists. Following a landmark First Amendment case of their own, Michael Lacy and Jim Larkin became committed to the citizens of Arizona with knowing their rights.
The case went to the U.S. Supreme court on appeal stemming from what they considered as an act to suppress their freedom of speech through publishing efforts. The case was a victory with a $3.75 million settlement which was used to set up the Larkin and Lacey Frontera Fund.
While there are always changes that become necessary in order to evolve as a society, the rights of all humans that arrive on the soil of America have always been the country’s foundation.
