The Frontera Fund is something that was created to people who were stuck in civil rights cases. The fund was created to help people get out of bad situations where they were unable to fight the problems that come about as a result of fighting for their civil rights. The fund can be used for money that they need during that time, for attorneys and even for other expenses as long as they are a direct result of the civil rights case that the person is involved in.
The fund has been able to help many people and it is something that Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin will continue to work on so that they are able to help other people who are going through the same problems that they went through. They want to make sure that people are able to get the monetary help that they need while they are fighting for rights that they are already supposed to have.
Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin were actually in the same boat as the people who are able to use the fund. As journalists, they began reporting on the problems that were associated with their local sheriff’s office. They did not do it in a slanderous way but that’s the way that the sheriff’s office saw it.
They arrested Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin and chose to begin prosecuting them for simply reporting on information that they had found about the office. They did this because it made them look bad and they wanted Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin to pay for what they had done. Read more: About Lacey and Larkin- Frontera Fund
Since Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin were always fighting for civil rights for other people even before this incident, they were well aware of all of their rights. This was something that they used to their advantage during this case and something that they did to make sure that they were able to get more out of the case that they were involved in. They chose to fight it and that is what eventually led to the creation of the Frontera Fund.
After fighting the case, Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin sued the sheriff’s office and won over three million dollars. They wanted to put this to good use and that allowed them the chance to start the Frontera Fund. They saw it as a way for them to make sure that they were helping other people who had the same problems.
The fund was created for those who are dealing with civil rights cases so that they will be able to fight the case without worrying about money. It is something that Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin are passionate about and something they will continue to grow.
