Jim Larkin and Michael Lacey Created Frontera So People Would Have Opportunities

Groups that work hard to make sure that they are helping people with civil rights and with other issues that they might be having must make sure that they are doing the right things in their own organizations.

The groups have to be very careful about what they do and they have to make sure that they are trying to do thigns the right way for the people who they work with. When others are unable to get these things done, it makes it hard for the groups and can be detrimental for the people who the groups are trying to help.

It also can make things harder for people to make sure that they are getting things done the right way and for people to be able to try different things in the areas that they are in because of the issues that often come with these types of groups.

 

For people like Jim Larkin and Michael Lacey, the civil rights group was something that they didn’t even have to question. They knew that they wanted to do it so that they could help people and make their lives better.

They were confident in their skills and were able to learn a lot so that they could help people. With their civil rights group, they decided that they could do more to help people than most other groups were able to do.

The Frontera Fund was born as a result of the things that the men did and the things that they worked on together. They knew that they wanted to make sure that things were going to work out for them and for the people who were in different situations.

They also knew that they could try to make things better for these people so that they would be able to help them no matter what type of issues they were going through or what type of problems they had in their own experiences with the different things that were going on.

 

Since the Frontera Fund has been working for people and since it has been growing, Jim Larkin and Michael Lacey know that it will continue to help people. No matter what type of situation the people are going through, they can try to use the Frontera Fund to make things better for themselves.

The fund can help them in several different ways and it can show them what they are missing out on if they have not had the chance to be able to help themselves with the civil rights issues in their own areas.

Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin Intend to Stop Joe Arpaio’s Senate run with Front Page Confidential

 

Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin are the owners of a new newspaper called Front Page Confidential. They previously owned and worked at the Phoenix New Times, but they sold the publication shortly after being awarded a 3.75 million dollar lawsuit.

The lawsuit was the result of their illegal arrest by corrupt sheriff Joe Arpaio. Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin were using their previous newspaper as a way to expose Joe Arpaio and his unjust actions. When Arpaio finally had enough of their investigations and journalism, he sent his deputies to their homes to make the arrests.

Lacey and Larkin’s journalistic peers did not sit back and watch their fellow journalists have their first amendment rights stepped on. Instead, they voiced their opinions in their own publications. Due to the outcry from newspapers and citizens all over the country, Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin were released from custody. That’s when they filed their lawsuit.

It has been over half a decade, but Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin are finally able to put their money to good use. They have created The Frontera Fund and Front Page Confidential.

The Frontera Fund is a charity that is assisting the former victims of Arpaio. The Frontera Fund focuses on the Hispanic community simply for the reason that they are who Joe Arpaio targeted with his unethical policing.

Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin are using their new paper to stop Arpaio in his tracks concerning his effort to run for Senate in 2018.
