Larkin & Lacey: Sharing a Passion for Justice

Within the political world including the law enforcement agencies, we see that despite modern innovation and tools there is still a root problem in the abuse of power. This is just one of the many issues that need addressing through the various advocates for human rights in existence today. Despite these problems, the solutions have never been closer within our immediate grasp. Given the explosion of advanced technology we are now able to send information and communicate more efficiently which means that people are also becoming contentious in general.

This is highly advantageous for those wishing to advocate a specific cause to change the world. However, change does not come as easy as you may think, and only the most determined organizations with a true passion for their work seem to shine above the rest.

The Citizens Justice Associate shares said passion, and continues today to work towards educating people who cannot afford a lawyer about the law system. This is accomplished through professional seminars.

They specifically train potential activists in the craft of the psychology of protest and fully comprehending their legal rights in very important situations. They protect citizens from legal and governmental abuse and advocate information and the benefits of it as a citizen under the law.

This is absolutely imperative towards stabilizing and enriching the minds of those who are potentially ill-informed. This increases the rise of human rights activism and ensures that the public is informed of what otherwise would not have been given to them.

Another group which specializes in informing the public but also providing overall support to the movement is the Larkin & Lacey Frontera Fund. Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin are the founders of this organization and are actively growing it to this day to further their noble cause, advocating for all human, civil and migrant rights. Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin are the Co-founders of Phoenix New Times and Village Voice Media and both have their role in the business.

Larkin is responsible for mostly the advertising side, whereas Lacey is more involved as the executive director. They were targeted by law enforcement and were threatened that the state would seize their articles and notes.

They then published this which seemingly was a mistake because they were both arrested in their homes in the late hours of the night. They then were driven in rather discreet vans to separate stations where they were interrogated. Read more: Village Voice Media | Wikipedia

When they were released they came into a lawsuit resulting in a settlement fund of three million dollars. This is how the Frontera Fund came to be, and it continues to this day with the amazing cause of setting things right in the world.

For Larkin & Lacey, the abuse of power experienced infringing upon their free speech was more than enough reason to funnel their money into an advocacy group. Not only that, but they also give generously to those who are involved in similar causes. Their generosity continues with the implementation of effective stratagems.
