Jim Larkin and Michael Lacey Help Minorities With Activist Opportunities

Posted by under Activist Leaders

As activists, Jim Larkin and Michael Lacey have done what they can to help people with the different situations they have. They work with minorities to make sure they are offering them the best opportunities possible and that’s what has allowed the men to continue helping other people.

In fact, they have done their best to show others the things that will help them in their own situations. Despite not being legal advisors, Jim Larkin and Michael Lacey feel they have a lot of experience and are confident in helping people realize what they need to do to have a better life.

Both Lacey and Larking worked as journalists. While they were in that position, they were learning as much as they could about the world around them. While some of the things they learned were positive and helped them do their job more effectively, many of the things caused problems and made it harder for them to realize what was actually going on in the world.

They didn’t like to see the issues minorities were facing and they knew they wouldn’t be able to continue facing these issues if they didn’t have the help they needed.

In the course of their reporting, Jim Larkin and Michael Lacey published information about corruption in the local sheriff’s office. They didn’t think it was fair and they wanted to expose the truth. Even though they didn’t do anything that was wrong or illegal, they were arrested.

The men had to go through different trials and had to fight against the case because of the way it was working for them and for people who were in different situations. The men won the case and that’s what allowed them to continue on as they were working toward helping people with the issues they faced.

After they had won the case, Jim Larkin and Michael Lacey decided it was time to start working on being better activists. They did what they could to help people and set up the Frontera Fund. The three million dollars they won from the case was beneficial in setting up the foundation and the men knew it would be something they could use to make things better.

It was also something people would benefit from if they were struggling through issues as minorities and in different situations where they were an important part of the industry and the focus in the industry.
