Another agency helping spread the human right flag is the Lacey and Larkin Frontera Fund. Owned and managed by Phoenix New Times and Village Voice Media, they have dedicated settlement money acquired from a suit they filed against Sheriff Joe Arpaio to fund migrant rights organizations in all of Arizona. The Maricopa County Sheriff Joe arrested journalists at night from their homes and were jailed for unleashing the existence of grand jury proceedings that looked for the reporter’s notes on the work they covered about the Sheriff.

The Jury Subpoenas wanted the identity of the citizens that read the New Times stories on their website. The company had to sue the Sheriff’s department because of these actions. Lacey and Jim Larkin have always been defending their First Amendment rights. They were successful after all the struggles in the United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit. Lacey and Larkin Frontera Fund supports the groups that help the people in fighting for civil, migrant and human rights. It considers groups that defend the freedom of speech and civic participation in Arizona and the Mexican border.

Meeting between the government and the human right agencies is essential for them to agree on a humane way of treating the vulnerable. The organizations have many participants who meet the staff.

They make efforts to ensure that they take issues of concern and raise them in UN summits like UN Human Rights Council, World Trade Organizations and International Labour Organisation (ILO). Both like involving themselves in other UN and inter-governmental agencies. Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin have been instrumental in fighting for the rights of immigrants through their newsletter.
