Larkin & Lacey

Who will help organizations that struggle for the plights of LGBTQ+ individuals, immigrants, free speech and Hispanics?  The Lacey and Larkin Frontera Fund is your answer. It is the offspring of a $3.7 million settlement given to Jim Larkin and Michael Lacey following threats that they received for publishing their opinions about the local government in Maricopa County, Arizona.

The Anti Defamation League is a Jewish themed, pro-Israel organization. It keeps track of hate symbols that are used, and you can find those symbols on a free database that they keep on their website. Most of the hate symbols have to do with white-supremacist or white-themed organizations.

The American Civil Liberties Union, or the ACLU, is an organization that struggles for the plight of people’s constitutional rights. Unlike some other organizations, the ACLU will defend organizations that are thought of as “hateful,” as long as those organizations are genuinely having their constitutional rights broken.

Black Lives Matter is an organization centered around the plight of Black people in America, though the movement has grown world-wide. What makes Back Lives Matter different from past movements for Black liberation is that attention is put on groups that have been historically ignored and marginalized in such movements. Importance is placed on the priority that cis-gender Black men are not the only ones having their concerns heard and are not the only ones taking credit.

Unidos Us is an organization that advocates for recognition and respect for Hispanic people. It was formerly called the National Council of La Raza, though in 2017 they changed their name.

Lacey and Larkin advance their plight by various means. For example, they take part in community outreach and get involved in public policy work. Read more: Phoenix New Time and Jim Larkin | Crunchbase

EURO is an organization that claims to advocate for the human rights and interests of people of European descent. Headquartered in Louisiana, it takes on issues that affect people of European descent, such as discrimination and forced institutions that go against their cultural interests.

Trans Queer Pueblo is an organization based in Arizona that exists with the mission to give LGBTQ+ people of color respected voices in their communities.

Despite the fact that colored people are well aware of a collective history of being discriminated against, within their communities there is discrimination against gender identities and sexualities that deviate against norms.

Femen is a radical feminist group that uses “sextremism” to get the their point across. Sextremism is the act of protesting with bare breasts showing and putting on over the top, sometimes sexual themed protests.

Lacey and Larkin believe that the female body represents the truth and that it is a weapon against patriarchal values.
