It is notable that many non-governmental movements and the organizations have come forward to plea and fight these injustices mainly through courts as the main channel of justice in any state. They have also enabled the unfair minority treatment to be aired through social media platforms and thus creating awareness and remedy to the groups.
The lacey and Larkin Frontera fund is not an exception to these movements.
Larkin and Michael Lacey were once journalists writing for the village voice media, a weekly newspaper that they had started in the year 1971. They were later arrested for what they wrote and advertised in the newspaper. These led to the end of their long career in the media field.
They were later acquitted of their charges by the county attorney since there was no concrete evidence against them for violation of the law. The two journalist also sued Arpaio Sheriff and the county prosecutor for the abuse of power. It was later found that there was no reason to prosecute Larkin and Lacey as there was no reason for their prosecution and the prosecutor did not consult the grand jury on the matter.
Later the Maricopa County settled the case and awarded Jim and Michael a lump sum amount of almost four million US dollars. This settlement formed the basis for the formation of the Frontera fund. It is a movement that advocates for human rights and the migrant rights in the USA.
