Singing in One Voice: The Frontera Fund

Life is full of shocking surprises. While we at times anticipate for certain things to happen, others are stimulated by forces of nature. For instance, The Frontera Fund is a product of an unlikely circumstance that saw its founders; Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin get falsely apprehended by a devious Maricopa Sheriff by the name of Joe Arpaio. Using the Selective Enforcement Unit, the Maricopa County Sheriff sent his deputies on a witch hunt, that to arrest the two journalists. Just like in a combat movie kidnapping scene, the two individuals were whisked off by officers from the sheriff’s department and forcefully shoved into sub utility vehicles with tinted windows and Mexican license plates. Apparently, the directive came from Arpaio who heads the sheriff’s department.

 

Joe Arpaio was spooked off by Michael and Jim’s actions of publicly exposing him for allegations of abuse of public office. An outraged Joe initiated the arrests since the two journalists had at one point in time covered a story on him in the Phoenix New Times. In the story, Arpaio was said to be guilty of causing the deaths of inmates due to torture and mistreatment, racial prejudice, as well as illegally detaining individuals from the Latino community. In only a span of 24 hours, Michael and Jim got released from jail due to a public outcry, and after attending many court sessions after suing the sheriff and Maricopa County for abuse of power, they got rewarded with a $3.7 million settlement in 2013.

 

That is when the idea of creating The Frontera Fund got born. By using all the money from their settlement, Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin created the organization to help individuals hailing from the Hispanic community fight social and political injustices. Also, they created the group so as to help deal with racial profiling particularly in the State of Arizona. Ever since its inception, The Frontera Fund has joined hands with other like-minded groups to fight for the rights of Mexicans who travel a thousand miles through hostile terrain in search for better opportunities for their families. The Frontera Fund has been silently providing finances to non-profit organizations whose primary purpose is to fight for the rights and freedoms of the Hispanic migrant population. Through the Frontera Fund, Jim and Michael have been able to create global awareness as to what transpires in Arizona on a daily basis.

 

Michael and Jim’s agenda has been extremely useful to the extent that it has given other watch dog groups the courage and endurance they need to fight oppression. Due to Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin’s heart for giving, they have offered a voice to the voiceless. So far, the Frontera Fund has caused a major stir in how refugees are handled, causing the authorities to pay particular attention as to how they treat migrants.

Betsy DeVos Gives An Insight Into The Reasons Behind Her Philanthropy

The name Betsy DeVos seems to have always been linked with education and philanthropy as the entire DeVos family has remained key backers of the education reform movement across the U.S. I was pleased to see Betsy DeVos was recently named as the U.S. Secretary of Education in a move that many people, like myself, feel validates the education reform movement Mrs. DeVos has been a key part of for over two decades; what is most amazing to me is the fact Betsy DeVos has been involved in the education reform movement since it was seen as an extremist group determined to provide greater levels of choice for the family’s of students across the nation. Visit Betsy’s profile page on Facebook.

As a member of the Prince industrial family, Betsy DeVos is often viewed as not being in touch with the needs of the everyday American family, I feel this is an incorrect view of Mrs. DeVos as the Education Secretary’s own mother was a public school teacher in the family’s native Michigan and instilled in her daughter the need to help families get the best possible education. In her early career, Betsy DeVos became an advocate for at risk students in Michigan before she set out to bring school choice and school voucher systems to the students of the U.S. as one of the most important figures in the education reform movement. After marrying the former AmWay President Dick DeVos, I was pleased to see Betsy remain in Michigan and found the inspiration to begin a number of political and activism groups fighting for the rights of students to have a say in their own education.

It was during the 1990s and early 21st century that Betsy DeVos made her biggest mark on the education reform movement when she headed two 501 charities devoted to reforming the education platform in the U.S. Alongside the work completed at a national level, Betsy DeVos has spent much of her time looking to have a positive impact on her local community in Grand Rapids, Michigan, where the DeVos family is still based; as the Chair of the Michigan Republican Party and campaigner with the Great Lakes Education Project that has been fighting for over a decade to bring school choice and charter schools to Michigan. The philanthropic work of Betsy DeVos is not solely limited to the education arena as I have read on many occasions of the donations and work completed by the entire DeVos family for the Kennedy Center for the Arts, ArtPrize, and the Kendall College of Art and Design.
