Despite their weaknesses, Lacey and Larkin have always seen a lot of good in an evil world, trying to shape up systems that happened to undermine the rights and freedoms of innocent civilians all across the globe.
However, Michael and Jim’s attention entirely lies with the people of Arizona, a community that has for a very long time been subject to oppression due to it being a State that harbors many immigrants.
Since 2007, Jim and Michael have found a foul taste for people who abuse the powers given to them by their office. For instance, it is in 2007 that the two journalists did the unthinkable, by exposing the real Joe Arpaio. Through a paper section editorial, Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin proved to the world just how Joe, the Maricopa County Sheriff at the time, got to undermine the rights of individuals hailing from the Hispanic community.
After an unlawful arrest, Lacey and Larkin took offense and decided to take the matter to court. Thanks to the justice system of America, Jim and Michael were able to get their reprieve in 2013, receiving $3.75 million a compensation for their past ordeal. Soon after, the duo created what is presently renowned as the Lacey and Larkin Frontera Fund.
For four years, the organization has been a source of hope for the many Arizona nationals that suffer in silence. By supporting a group like the Phoenix Allies for Community Health (PACH) that has for a long time helped many undocumented immigrants gain access to quality healthcare. Before PACH got established, immigrants had been suffering in silence when since health services at the time exposed them to a lot of financial exploitation.
Thanks to the aid offered by the Lacey and Larkin Frontera Fund, PACH is now better placed at providing immigrants with quality, yet free health care. To this end, the organization has been able to save the lives of many immigrants, giving them the courage to face life one day at a time. With the contribution of Lacey and Larkin, PACH is certainly going a long way.
