The nonprofit Frontera Fund

In 2007, Jim Larkin and Michael Lacey were illegally arrested by Joe Arpaio, the sheriff of Maricopa County in Arizona. The ruthless sheriff had sent his unit of armed officers to arrest the former owners of the weekly alternative New Times, Inc., now known as Village Voice Media, while they were inside their Phoenix, AZ, homes. The two had initiated a major lawsuit against sheriff Arpaio after they were arrested without probable cause and had their First Amendment rights violated. After it was ruled that the sheriff had wrongfully arrested the journalists, the county had paid them both $3.75 million to settle the legal battle.


Jim Larkin and Michael Lacey used some of the money to endow the Larkin and Lacey Frontera Fund. The nonprofit Frontera Fund will act as a support to other organizations that fight to protect Latino, Hispanic and migrant rights. Their fund has already provided grants to organizations across the state of Arizona. Larkin and Lacey have also collaborated to launch the Front Page Confidential, an online news source that focuses on the preservation of free speech in the U.S. and offers their commentary and historical perspectives pertaining to the issue. The Front Page Confidential released a story on how ex-sheriff Arpaio was pardoned by President Donald Trump, allowing him to flat out avoid a prison term. Joe Arpaio is now currently running for U.S. Senate as a Republican, despite controversially losing his job as sheriff.

The Lacey & Larkin Frontera Fund Deeper

Jim and Michael are the two people that know the most about what it means to write about something that is a hot topic. They paid high consequences for it too. On October 18, 2007 they were detained and put into jail in one of the most horrible situations in Arizona at the time.

That was the start of the Frontera Fund. It raises the awareness of people that are harassed for writing about the truth. It goes even deeper than that. Here are some of the details.

After the arrest, they won a 3.7 million dollar settlement from the arrest, against Joe Arpaio, the officer who arrested them. It turns out that the officer had also created a grand jury subpoena for the identity of the people who read the story online that named Sheriff Joe Arpaio of Maricopa County. Learn more about Jim Larkin and Michael Lacey:

While there might have been some previous cases of intimidation previous to this, it is still upsetting to know that a person can be harassed in such a manner.

Obviously this didn’t work in the long run. As 3.7 million is a lot of money to settle for in a case of fear and intimidation. It is well deserved as well. There really is no price that could ever be placed on a person’s sense of safety and security in the world today.

That is why this is so important to continue to raise awareness for the rights of people in Arizona to have freedom of speech and even thought.

This fund will serve as the advocate for those people that find themselves at odds with the law that is violating human, civil rights and freedom of speech in Arizona. This extends to the Mexican border as well for those that need the help in that area. Read more: Michael Larcey | Twitter and Michael Larcey | Facebook

Freedom of speech is so important as the world goes forward in times of trepidation. It is more than admirable that such a fund exists to help people that are in this situation. There is more to be done for the protection of people’s rights everywhere.

While it is amazing that someone would have to go to this extent to enforce the most basic of human rights everywhere, but it is increasingly becoming a problem. That is what makes this so admirable. There was a need for someone to step up to the plate and provide a system to help people that were experiencing problems when they spoke up about human rights violations. Now those people have a voice thanks to Larkin & Lacey.

This goes far deeper than anything before its time. Previously, people might set up a foundation to raise awareness, but this provides money to the person in need for their legal fees. If legal assistance is available, then that is provided directly.

Historically, this type of help has happened, but not to the extent of this. This goes far above and beyond the call to help those people on a deeper level that are victims of human rights violations in Arizona today.
