For their entire lives, Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin have worked hard to make sure that their voices are heard. They don’t do this because they want to be popular or they think that they are important. Instead, they do it because they want to be able to speak for those who can’t speak for themselves and for those who struggle with human rights violations.
They believe in standing up for everyone and they always make sure that they do that so that people do not have major problems in their lives. It is something that the men have always done even as reporters.
Human rights are important to Larkin and Lacey just like they should be important to everyone else in the United States. They are meant to protect people and to ensure that they don’t have to deal with problems based on who they are, what they look like or the amount of money that they have.
They are there to protect people but sometimes, the government does not always protect them in the way that they should because that would get in the way of the agenda that the government has for other things that they need to do.
This is all especially true for immigrants of the United States. In the past year, immigrants have been more at-risk than they ever have before and it is causing major problems for their rights. It is also something that has changed drastically based on the different things that are going on with the government.
Larkin and Lacey want to see this change and want to make sure that immigrants will always be protected with the rights that the government originally thought that they needed to have to be able to safely and successfully come to the United States.

The men were previously reporters. They simply reported on things that were going on like immigrants rights and human rights. This was helpful but it was not helpful enough because they couldn’t take real action or make a real difference in the things that were going on in the world.
They wanted to do something more but they also recognized that they needed money to be able to do this and that they needed to make sure that they would be able to help other people out. When it came to that, they only had the salary of reporters and didn’t have a lot of extra money to spend.
Things changed when Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin were arrested for a report that they did. They won the case when they challenged the arrest and were awarded a huge settlement based on the problems that they had gone through.
With this settlement, which was over three million dollars, the men decided that they were going to finally make a difference. They created the Frontera Fund with this sum of money and they even added to it later on. Now, they work as advocates for civil rights, human rights and immigrant rights.
