Larkin & Lacey Fronterera Fund
The Phoenix New Times owners, Jim Larkin and Micheal Lacey have decided to fund various organizations that fight for fundamental human rights in Arizona. They are to get their source of cash from a legal proceeding against the sheriff. The two reporters will place the total unliquidated damages awarded by the court towards fighting for the immigrants’ rights. The total sum of the pay by the sheriff will be $3.75 million.
Lacey and Larkin had been taken into custody by a local sheriff. The officer had accused them of writing a story about him. The two were appalled by this decision and decided to sue the county in a court of law. The court allowed their arguments and granted the two a total of $3.75 million as unliquidated damages.

The group’s policy is to develop an all-inclusive society regardless of an individual social, political or color standing. The firm believes in the need to change how people perceive certain situations. The coalitions believe that you cannot achieve change with the same mentality and thought processes.
The coalition gained momentum in 1986 after the enactment of the now infamous immigration control act. The law required all employees to be documented. It was then a crime to recruit and or hire any undocumented worker. The intent is to discriminate against the immigrants.
