The Frontera Fund is an organization that is able to help people with the issues that they are having and with the experiences that they have when they are in different situations. For Jim Larkin and Michael Lacey to be able to create this foundation, they had to make sure that they were doing things the right way and they actually had to go through their own civil rights case so that they would be able to try different things for people who were in different situations. The men didn’t want to have to do that but they did it so that they could help other people.
When Larkin and Lacey worked on their own website, they were reporters. They were doing different things to show people the problems in the world. As reporters, they were along the lines of activists and that was something that set them apart from other reporters. They had to make sure that they were doing things the right way and that they were going to be able to show people different things that were corrupt in different areas. The men didn’t care what was going on or what they had to do, they knew that they had to expose corruption in different areas.
One of the biggest things was right in their own hometown. This was the corruption that was going on in their sheriff’s department and with the people who were a part of it. Jim Larkin and Michael Lacey knew that the sheriff was doing things that were illegal but they didn’t have any idea how far those ideas stretched. While the men suspected it was something that had to do with immigrants, they were unable to prove it until they started looking at the different situations in their sheriff’s office.
For Jim Larkin and Michael Lacey to be able to do this, they had to make sure that they were going to be able to try different things and do more in their business. They were huge supporters of immigration rights and of the things that were going on in their own situations. They were also fond of helping people who were unable to do much to help themselves. Because of this, Jim Larkin and Michael Lacey wanted to expose the sheriff’s office and the things that the sheriff was doing. They wanted to make sure that people were being treated fairly.
When the truth came out, Jim Larkin and Michael Lacey were arrested for the things that they were publishing about the sheriff’s office. The office arrested them illegally and that made it hard for the men to fight the issues that were going on in each of these situations. It was also something that made it nearly impossible for the men to continue with the things that they were doing. Jim Larkin and Michael Lacey were arrested but they used their experience to fight the charges and they were awarded a settlement that they then used to start the Frontera Fund.
