When Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin were working as journalists, they ran into a lot of issues with Joe Arpaio. He did not like what they were doing and he didn’t want them to be successful. In fact, he felt it was his job to get them off the street and he did a lot of damaging things to the men.
They knew they didn’t do anything wrong, though. Instead of taking the punishment and accepting that they were having their constitutional rights violated, the men made the choice to fight against what Arpaio was trying to do to them. Since Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin took that chance, they were able to win.
It took a lot of fighting, but Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin won a settlement from Joe Arpaio. They used the more than three million dollars they had taken from the settlement and finally started their dream of making the Frontera Fund. This was a fund they could use to try and help other people out with the issues they were dealing with.
They used it mostly for minorities to help them have a better time while they were fighting against the injustices of the world. They also provided them with the legal help they needed to fight any cases that they had to deal with. Read more: Jim Larkin | Angel.co and Michael Lacey | Twitter
For Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin, this meant they would need to try and help people. They had already made valuable connections when they were working as journalists, but they could turn these into more positive things to help more people with the Frontera Fund.
They were grateful they had the chance. Even though they were arrested for things they didn’t do and crimes that weren’t even really crimes, the men were happy that it happened. Without it, it would have taken them much longer to start the Frontera Fund.
Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin know what it takes to be positive influences for others. They know there are different things they can do to make a difference and all of that helps them bring attention to the issues that are going on in the industry.
They have always wanted people to try different things and do more with what they are given. It goes back to how they can make a change and how they can help others with the issues they are facing. They know they will have a chance to experience more if they are working toward more positive things.
Minorities must now learn how to live in a world with people in authority who are trying to bring them down. There are many others like Joe Arpaio who they have to fight against.
Larkin and Lacey want to teach all the minorities they do stand a chance against these people. If they can teach them about this, they’ll be able to actually make a difference in their lives even if they are not doing the best work possible to help other people out with those issues.
