Promise Arizona is built on a foundation of like-minded individuals who showcase similar interest when it comes to a robust community, good jobs, safe communities, and quality education.

Sheriff Joe Arpaio ordered the brutal arrest of Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin at wee hours of the night. It was unfortunate that the jury did not stop at that but went ahead to demand the identity of citizens who accessed the New Times stories.
Lacey and Larkin did not just sit back and see the state violate the rights of its citizens. They sort to put in schemes that would fully defend their First Amendment rights.
The county had to face the consequences of their actions, equivalently being answerable to the United States Court of Appeal, for the ninth circuit. The two journalist went ahead to sue the state and successfully got a compensation of $3.75 million which they vowed to help in supporting mushrooming justice-seeking organizations.
