Larkin and Lacey Frontera Fund Helping Champion the First Amendment and Migrant Rights

by WilliamV .

Many different parts of the world are suffering from the significant humanitarian crisis, and the worst part is that even when the world has reached the twenty-first century, there are people and kids dying of hunger.

The cases of human rights violations have been on the rise across the globe, and it is what indicates that a lot needs to be done for the progress of the world as a whole. Thanks to the hundreds and thousands of human rights organizations from across the globe that are active in different parts of the world helping people get food, medicine, education, and other essential facilities, hundreds and thousands of victims of human rights abuse, terrorism, racial disparity, draught, and different natural and unnatural reasons, are being rehabilitated.

The people these days do not trust the government as well because there is a significant gap in what the politicians say and do. People do not have trust in their country’s government, and it is the situation in many of the countries across the globe. Even though it is the people who have selected the government in power, once the politicians come in power, they forget the promises they make to the people.

It is this cycle that has been going the situation of the world even worse with time, also though there are many other aspects in which the world has been growing fast. Some of the major human rights organizations that has been working relentlessly to reach out to and help the victims of human rights abuses are Human Rights Foundation, United Nations Human Rights Trust, International Federation for Human Rights, Office of the United Nations Human Rights, Amnesty International, Protection International, Global Rights, Human Rights Group, and more.

 

In the United States, one of the recent events that bought into the limelight how the administration uses their power to torment the civilians and abuse the rights of the citizens was the wrongful arrest of Jim Larkin and Michael Lacey by Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio.

Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin are the owners of Village Voice Media and Phoenix New Times, and it is an independent news group that reports about the shortcomings of the administrations in Arizona, misuse of power by the County Sheriff, how the Hispanic community in Arizona are selectively targeted and wrongfully arrested, and much more.

It is probably such reporting that led to the County Sheriff to lead their arrest without any valid reasons.

 

However, Jim Larkin and Michael Lacey received tremendous community and national support and were released within 24 hours of arrest. They filed the case against the state and comprehensively won the legal battle along with the settlement amount of $3.75 Million.

It is this fund that they have converted into Frontera Fund, which is used to help with champion the cause of migrant rights, freedom of speech, freedom of media, freedom of expression, First Amendment Rights, and more. Jim Larkin and Michael Lacey are sure that it is these small steps collectively by the communities across the country that would help in making the positive changes in the country.

The Rise of James

James Aziz was born on April 30, 1949, in London, Ontario and got his education at Ridley College before majoring in economics at the prestigious University of Western Ontario. It was not long before he moved to join his family business in wholesale food manufacturing, Affiliated Foods, in 1971. He became part of the company’s growth over 16 years and led it to become one of the world’s top importer of fresh quality foods from Central and South America and Europe. With the help of Greg Aziz, Affiliated Foods reached its distribution line to all the major fresh food and wholesale markets across Eastern Canada and the United States.

National Steel’s Transformation

Greg James Aziz also worked on numerous investment banking accounts in New York during the late 1980s until the early 1990s. In 1884 he was able to successfully organize the acquisition of the National Steel Car from Dofasco, with the goal of transitioning the formerly great Canadian form into its transformation as North America’s No. 1 railroad freight car producer.

Gregory J Aziz was able to fuel the growth of National Steel Car by emphasizing the company’s strong engineering background, its people’s team-building assets and the fantastic human and capital investment endorsed by the enterprise. This growth is highly evident in the capability of the manufacturer to increase its production from 3,500 cars/year at the time of the acquisition to 12,000 vehicles by the end of 1999. Such growth gave rise to employment from 600 to as many as 3,000.
