Lacey & Larkin Frontera Fund
Headquartered in Phoenix, Arizona, Lacey & Larkin Frontera Fund was founded by two journalists, Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin.
The group was created to support civil, human and migrant rights organizations around Arizona. Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin are also well known as co-founders of the Phoenix New Times and Village Voice Media.
The partners used the $ 3.75 million court settlement from their arrest in October 2007 by Sheriff Joe Arpaio to establish the organization. They were arrested after being sued by the Sheriff for revealing a sensitive case of him that was on the proceedings in one of their articles.
They were freed after their innocence was proved. They formed the organization because Arizona residents deserve to have their rights protected. Many people have appreciated all these advocacy groups as they have benefited from their services.
