Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin used to report on different things that were going on in the world of human rights. They tried to make sure that they were doing things the right way so that they would be able to do more with their own reporting experiences.
They did a lot of different things that helped them to make the right choices and to show people the options that they had to make things better for themselves. They did a lot to make a difference in the world and they always did everything that they could to show people that things could be great for others.
The men found information out about their loca sheriff’s office. The office was violating human rights and was actually preventing people from becoming citizens of the United States even though they were within their legal rights to be able to do so. Read more: Village Voice Media | Wikipedia
It was something that Larkin and Lacey felt that they would be able to do and that they wanted to report on so that they could change the opinions that people had about them. It was also something that made it harder for them to do different things on their own with the opportunities that they had.
Unfortunately, the men were arrested for doing this type of reporting. The sheriff’s office did not understand that the men were within their legal rights or they simply did not care and arrested them even though they were protected under the freedom of the press. They were taken to jail but that was something that changed the way that things were done. It was an easy way for Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin to exercise their own rights and use the knowledge that they built up over the years of defending people.
Even though the men knew that they would be protected and that they could fight the charges, they immediately began thinking of all of the people who were going through similar situations and did not have the money that they needed to be able to fight it.
While Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin were able to use their money to fight the problems, they were concerned that other people wouldn’t be able to do it because they didn’t have that kind of money or they did not have the support that they needed.
After getting an over 3 million dollar settlement from the sheriff’s office, Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin set up the Frontera Fund. Now, anyone who is going through human rights violation cases is able to take advantage of the fund.
They can use it to help themselves through financial troubles. They can also use it to pay for court fees and for attorneys in the areas that they are in. It is something that has made a huge difference in the way that things are going and something that has made it easier for Larkin and Lacey to continue their fight for human rights for everyone in the United States.
