The Frontera Fund is a fund that is set up to make sure that people are able to get the information that they need in different situations. It is something that they have been able to do in the time that they have worked with different people and since they are able to make sure that they are getting what they can for people who have human rights issues. They use the fund to pay for fees that are associated with the human rights violation and the people who are able to use it are the ones who need it the most when it comes to the opportunities that they have.

 

For people who are having their human rights violated, Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin know how hard it can be. They once were in the same situation and that was somewhat of a problem for the people who were doing different things. They had simply talked about the sheriff’s department and then they were arrested for doing so. This was in violation of free speech rights as well as freedom of the press rights that they were missing out on. It was problematic and caused a huge upset in the things that they were doing in their lives during that time.

 

Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin were able to fight the problems that they received from the sheriff’s department. They went to court and then they appealed again. After appealing it several times, they were able to settle out of court. The sheriff’s office paid them over three million dollars and that was to help them with the problems that they had gone through and to make things better for them. Both Larkin and Lacey knew what they had to do with the money and immediately started using it.

 

They used it to help set up the Frontera Fund. They wanted people to know that they were going to be safe no matter what they were doing that was within the human rights laws. They also wanted to make sure that people knew that there were different things that they were able to help with. Whether it was helping to recover lost wages, court costs or even fees that are associated with attorneys. The Frontera fund is able to help people do all of that no matter what they are working on in different situations that they are in.
