Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin are helpers. They do what they can to help people who are struggling or who are unable to help themselves in different situations. They do a lot of different things to help these people and have been able to help with different things.
From reporting on corrupt officials to now running an organization that can be used to fund different opportunities for people in different situations, the men know that they are able to do a lot of things for people so that they can help them with nearly everything that they have to offer.
Larkin and Lacey started out as reporters. They reported on injustices and things that were corrupt in their community as well as around the rest of the country. They were reporting on a sheriff in their own area when they suffered a human rights violation of their own.
This was something that they had to deal with and something that was difficult for them. They were arrested for their freedom of speech and the freedom of the press that they had in the United States. It was a difficult arrest and something that significantly disrupted their lives.

Both of the men made the decision to fight the arrest. They were not going to go down for something that was their own rights. The arrest was unconstituational. They knew this first because it was something that they had dealt with through other people that they were trying to help. They also knew it because this was the same sheriff’s office that they had reported on.
The entire office was unconstitutional and it was something that the men knew that they would have to deal with now that they had been arrested even though they were within their own rights.
This arrest ended up being something that was beneficial for the men. They knew that it was something that they would have to deal with but since they fought it, they were actually able to win against the sheriff’s office.
They got a large sum of money from the office. It was over three million dollars and they used it for the good of other people. Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin set up the Frontera Fund with the money that they got from the sheriff and they are now able to provide financial help to other people who are dealing with human rights violations.
