So, where can a person go, when they want to find the latest news and information regarding civil rights, and especially immigration rights, in the United States? The answer to that question is simple and yet at the same time layered with data. The Lacey and Larkin Frontera Foundation is just one of many organizations that work in tandem.
They strive to draw attention to fact that the people have the power when it comes to matters of justice and the American way. The foundation website http://www.laceyandlarkinfronterafund.org/ has a home page that folds together several different pages, links and references worthy of looking into.
Just to get an idea of makes this organization so necessary, and understand the backdrop on how they get started, there is the story “The Incident that Launched Frontera Fund” found on the about page. This is not just an editorial or some piece to stroke the egos of the founders themselves.
There is really useful and pertinent information regarding Mike Lacey, Jim Larkin and Sheriff Joe Arpaio. The anchor text found within the article is really worth clicking on. Also, on that page is “Relevant Links”, which has a list of other stories that cover the events leading up to the establishment of the Lacey and Larkin Frontera Foundation.
For those information buffs that just cannot get enough data to archive and reference, there is the “All Articles” page that has all the articles contained within the website. As a side note, not every article in the site originated there. Some of the articles come as far away as the New York Times.
These articles fall in to the categories of Arpaio Archives, Frontera Fund news, In the Media, Resources and Trump Watch. Some these stories are old while others are fresh from the media circuit. However, they are all completely relevant. Learn more about Michael Lacey: http://www.bizjournals.com/phoenix/potmsearch/detail/submission/6427427/Jim_Larkin and http://www.laceyandlarkinfronterafund.org/about-lacey-larkin-frontera-fund/michael-lacey/
Now, the meat and potatoes of the Lacey and Larkin Frontera Foundation Fund website is the Supported Organization page. There, anyone who want to take a look can see a list of 28 different organizations that range from the Aliento to the Si Se Puede organization.
In between these names they can find the American Immigration Council, Arizona Dream Act Coalition, The Florence Immigration and Refugee Rights Project, Justice that Works, PACH (Phoenix Allies for Community Health) and many more.
These organizations are not just a list of places to use during an investigation or resource material for presentations. They are groups of people committed to seeing the end of oppression as we know in the state of Arizona, the USA and beyond.
The resource page is kind of where everything comes together and the information gets to the nitty-gritty.
There website visitors can find stories with pertinent information regarding subjects like “Protection for Military Families: Parole in Place”, “Checkpoints USA”, “Ten Questions to Ask an Immigration Attorney” and “DACA Renewal: What you Need to Know”. Of course, there is more information on the resources page than just these stories. And, of course, there is a contact page where information becomes interactive and anyone can submit questions to staff.
