Jim and Michael, the co-founders of the Larkin and Lacy Frontera Fund are a house name when it comes to the championing of civilian, migrant, and human rights.
As you already know, human right affairs are sometimes never rosy, they were arrested in 2007 on the18th of October, due to Sherriff Joe Arpaio’s news to some reporters.
Upon the arrest, it was discovered that the Village Voice Media and the Phoenix New Times provided information via the sheriff that violated the group’s first amendment.
Upon suing the United States in the Court of Appeal, there was a settlement of $3.75 million. This resulted to the beginning of a fund that would support the following organizations in their endeavors:
- American Immigration Council
- American Civil Liberties Union of Arizona
- Arizona DREAM Act Coalition
- The Collabri Center for Human Rights
- The Florence Immigrant and Refugee Rights Project
- Cultural Coalition- Day of the Dead Phoenix
- Center for Neighborhood Leadership
Many more included the Phoenix New times where a publication in his name as well as other students published and led to the drop out of Michael Lacy from the Arizona State University.
Regardless of this fact, Lacy went on to form an advertising firm that hired some of the so-called “cohorts” during his time in University.
His friend Jim Larkin came to be a business partner and ensured through their efforts that the Phoenix New Times will expand and grow in such a manner as to build up other companies. They included the following:
- Westword LA Weekly
- Village Voice
- Miami New Times
Due to their various efforts in the business, Larkin and Lacey helped the companies grow and they earned a reputation for some magazine style writing as well as long form reporting in a sophisticated form that ensured that they covered such issues as arts, music, and events effortlessly.
However, they went on to be the best writers for magazines that were a favorite for people during the 70s and 80s and thereon due to some prolific writing that was once meant to be thwarted but was managed well enough to get to success.
In conclusion, their commitment to the First amendment act is what led to the success that is today the Lack &Lacey Frontera. Therein lies the reason why they were so successful in their business.
It was through following the law and ensuring that they did provide what their clients needed from them.
