The Achievements of Lacey & Larkin Frontera Fund

The Lacey & Larkin Frontera Fund is a non-profit organization set up to advocate for migrant, civil and human rights. The organization does this by donating to dozens of organizations that share the same vision. The Larkin & Lacey Frontera Fund was established by Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin.

To establish the organization, the duo used funds that they had acquired as settlement from wrongful imprisonment. Larkin and Lacey had been arrested for having intimidated the then Sheriff of Maricopa, Joe Arpaio. Being the co-founders and senior publishers at the Village Voice Media, they had been served with subpoenas for the action. However, they refused to cave in to it, reason being that they had every right to have published his commercial property addresses. Besides, their viewers could already find his residential home address online, which you would think to be more delicate that addresses to commercial properties. This started raising eyebrows, which led to a research by the Village Voice team.

Another reason why they refused to bend to the subpoenas is because they had illegal requirements. They were asking for information about the newspapers writers and editors. Also, they were asking for the IP addresses and browsing histories of the Newspaper’s viewers.

So, after illegally being served with subpoenas and refusing to cave, they were arrested, from their homes and in the middle of the night. The two were pushed into black SUVs and taken to different prisons. However, the following morning there was a public outcry, which led to the release of Jim Larkin and Michael Lacey.

After their release, Larkin and Lacey went ahead to sue. They were now suing for racial profiling and being arrested for executing their legal rights. A new judge was appointed to their case and it was soon discovered that the judge who served them subpoenas had done so without consulting anyone, making it illegal. The duo won the case and received a settlement of $3.75 million.

Today, with the money received the organization helps fight for the rights others that might be going through something similar experiences. They are dedicated to immigrants from Mexico. The immigrants go through a lot to get to Arizona. They go through very hard times in the desert while coming here. So, they couldn’t think of any other more deserving.
