The people I respect the most are the people who stand up against the evils that plagued mankind on this Earth. It is when good people take a stand the evil will never find route on this good World.
Personally, I myself have dedicated my livelihood to eradicating the evil in minds and hearts of people. I am not the only one to do this. Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin are two other people who also decided to take a stand against the tyranny in this world.
It was because these two brave men took a stand that they were able to start the Lacey and Larkin Frontera fund. The Lacey and Larkin Frontera fund came out of a Injustice that was done to Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin.
The Injustice began when Sheriff Joe Arpaio of the Maricopa County decided that he would retaliate against Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin because they exposed the crimes that he was doing. Read more: Michael Lacey | Facebook and Phoenix New Times | Wikipedia
It was on there to Media Outlets, Phoenix New Times and Village Voice media, that Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin showed who Sheriff Arpaio really was.
They reported, and showed evidence, that Sheriff Arpaio was guilty of racially profiling Latinos, systematically persecuting them, jailing them in substandard cells, allowing Latinos to die under his watch, and misappropriated the funds that the county had given him. Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin full well knew that Sheriff Arpaio was known to take revenge against those who spoke out against him.
It was on October 18th that Sheriff Arpaio thought he would enact his revenge. he pulled up to the homes of Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin and several unmarked SUVs. He would then illegally break down the doors of their homes, go inside, remove them from their beds, and then illegally detained them.
Michael and Jim were imprisoned for a total of 24 hours. The only reason that they were allowed to leave was because the outcry against this injustice grew to a national scale.
Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin would take the Maricopa County to court and sue them for a grand total of 3.75 million dollars. With the funds in hand, they would then go and start the Lacey and Larkin Frontera fund.
It was from this fund that they would begin giving other nonprofits grants so that they could also fight immigrant injustice and promote civil right
