People have rights and sometimes it can be difficult to protect those rights. There are many different forces at work within a society and they can easily create problems for minorities and immigrants. When this type of situation happens, social groups must step up and help to correct things.
Real power does not lie with individuals, it lies within a group. People cannot singlehandedly stop the violation of people’s rights. They typically have to be influential within a group of people to get things going. This is not as easy as it seems. Organizations are necessary for protecting society. However, they must be filled with individuals who are committed to protecting the rights of people.
The forces within society that want to hinder a person’s rights are not necessarily trying to harm them in most cases. The truth is that most people believe that their way of life is superior to others.
As a result, various groups, organizations, institutions and parties all try to push their agenda off on other people. They honestly try to believe in what they are doing is the right thing to do. This type of situation leads to the violation of people’s rights.
The Larkin and Lacey Frontera Fund was created from this type of condition. During the late 2000s a corrupt Arizona sheriff by the name of Joe Arpaio had wrongfully imprisoned Michael Larkin and Jim Lacey. He dragged these two men out of their homes in the middle of the night and locked them away in jail. He even got some trumped up warrants to seize important information from the men’s business.
Larkin and Lacey are the Phoenix Time News owners. They ran a story during the late 2000s that exposed Sheriff Arpaio’s corrupt practices against immigrants and within the jail facilities that he operated. Arpaio did not like the story and he worked to bring the men down.
Long story short, his actions violated the rights of Lacey and Larkin. They received millions in damages. They created the Frontera Fund from the money they were awarded for the violation of their rights. Read more: Jim Larkin | Crunchbase and Michael Lacey | LinkedIn
The Frontera Fund is used to provide financial backing to various social and political organizations that work to protect the rights of people everywhere. Many social and political groups understand that various people want to push their way of life on others. What works for one group does not always work for another. So, an imbalance takes place and people suffer.
Social and political organizations helps to bring back balance and to keep everything centered. The Larkin and Lacey Frontera Fund plays an important role with people’s freedom and rights.
