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
