Brown Modeling Agency of Austin, Texas, has been on a tear in recent years. This company has produced some of the best talent that has helped put the modeling agency on the map. Brown Agency is actually a combination of Wilhelmina Austin and Heyman Talent-South. This merger was the perfect idea, and it ended up being a huge success. On the other hand, Brown Agency represents both models and actors. This is also a full-services talent agency, which does business in a wide variety of field. The fields include print, runway, corporate events, industrial videos, television, commercial, catalogue, film, promotion and voiceover. This only scratches the surface of what the agency can reach.

Founder Justin Brown had a vision, and he has certainly turned that vision into a reality. Justin has been in the industry for many years. He was once a model himself who made around an estimated $100 an hour. Justin was a “fit model,” but not a fitness model. There’s a slight difference, but he would model the “rocker jean” types. Justin Brown is an entrepreneur in a sense. Instead of posing in front of the camera, he would eventually begin to work from behind the camera. Justin studied business management while in college, and business management has definitely helped him succeed. Development and placement was is area of expertise as he has trained many of the models. On the other hand, this agency has helped put the city of Austin, Texas, on the map. Its top models and actors have been publicly displayed for companies such as Toyota, Louis Vuitton, Landshark Beer, Dell, Dodge, Bing, Holiday-Inn, HBO, L’Oréal, TNT and numerous others. The agency is definitely on its way up.

Being so successful and gaining so much clout, Brown Agency has been able to network with others throughout industry. The agency has direct ties to the Los Angeles modeling scene. Its official website is loaded with informative material, photos and casting information. This agency is pro-active, and it’s always looking for new talent. In conclusion, Brown Modeling Agency has set the tone for what a modern day talent agency should be. Check out blog.brownagency.co

 

The Larkin & Lacey Frontera Fund

The Larkin & Lacey Frontera Fund was established by Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin after an illegal arrest resulted in a settlement for $375 million.

Their arrest was the result of actions taken by Sherriff Joe Arpaio, involving both men being grabbed from their homes late in the evening. They were placed in jail due to a story they wrote for the Phoenix New Times. The unethical practices of the Sheriff were revealed, and the men were released.

They won their case, defended their first amendment rights, and established the Larkin & Lacey Frontera Fund. The truth about the injustice of their arrest became public knowledge, and they proved the validity of the first amendment. Migrant rights organizations all over Arizona receive funding from the Frontera Fund to protect the migrants from injustice, and fight for their rights. Groups who advocate for human, civil, and migrant rights, and freedom of speech are also supported by the fund. Read more: Lacey and Larkin Frontera Fund and Phoenix New Times | Wikipedia

The Civil Rights Corps

This organization challenges injustices found within the American legal system. They help people who have been accused, and convicted of committing crimes, their communities, families, and individuals who have been incarcerated in the past.

Lacey and Larkin challenge the right of government officials, judges, organizers, and activists to place human beings in cages. They work towards the creation of a legal system promoting human freedom, and equality.

Lacey and Larkin aim to change the legal system with civil rights litigation, public education, and advocacy. They want to eliminate the brutality present in the criminal system in America.

They provide a human rights education to the community, and promote a world that is peaceful, and just. They maintain Nepal’s Community School so students can receive an education instead of becoming child labor. Without The Civil Rights Corps, these children would be unable to attend school.
