The Lacey & Larkin Frontera Fund has shown everyone that the law profession is better in a world where everyone helps each other.
The Frontera Fund was created by Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin, who are best known as the creators of the company Phoenix New Times. They are also owners of the brand Village Voice Media network corporation. The duo created their fund to support civil rights, human rights, and migrants’ rights attorneys and help them grow as individual and independent firms.
Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin were once victims of injustice from a man named Joe Arpaio, a Sheriff in a small county in the interior of the U.S.
Joe Arpaio imprisoned the duo in 2007 because of their involvement in an investigation regarding the past of the sheriff. Because of their leading participation and their keen understanding of the laws of the country and the guidelines of civil rights, Joe Arpaio saw no other choice than to arrest the two investigators in order to get away with his files.
Michael Lacey and his partner, however, used the settlement money from their detention to create the Frontera Fund, which would invest in dozens of firms that support the same goals of the duo. Civil Rights are guidelines that should defend all citizens, and the funding of the institution has made possible for many firms that develop themselves without having to lose their autonomy.
The settlement money of their arrest has reached a maximum peak of $3.75 million, which has already funded many lawyers and partners. The Frontera Fund is directly related to matters that support human rights and following them, as the institution believes that rooting for a just system is the next step for a better future of the nation.
This support can be seen in the example where Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin became part of a community who believes the DACA program is a big solution for some of the problems the United States’ facing right now, like the hoard of illegal immigrants from Mexico and other borders.
As Donald Trump wanted to close the DACA Program, many attorneys and experts like Lacey and Larkin have stated that there are better solutions than just shutting down the entire project. A slower and steady decrease of those who are able to benefit from the DACA program would be a better way to close the DACA program while also not hurting the families that are currently under the protection of the system.
The Frontera Fund is constantly updating their website with news regarding important legal issues like the closure of the DACA program and some of the statements and actions of Donald Trump. Any major even regarding civil and human rights in the United States is covered in their news section, and the Frontera Fund is constantly sharing their support for those who are fighting for justice and legality.
