The Lacey and Larkin Frontera Fund as a Rallying Point For Civil and Human Rights

Jim Larkin and Michael Lacey are two journalists who have always been fighting for freedom of speech, migrant rights, civil rights, and human rights. They co-founded the Phoenix New Times and Village Voice Media where they expose grave abuses and misconducts by the same officials that are supposed to protect the people but are doing the opposite.

The Frontera Fund came to be when Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin came to know of the existence of grand jury proceedings that ordered reporters journals about articles and news reports about Sheriff Joe Arpaio. What’s worse is that they also discovered that the grand jury issued subpoenas that seek information on private citizens who read Jim Larkin and Michael Lacey’s Phoenix New Times. These were all clear threats to freedom of speech, freedom of the press and right to privacy because it gives the very accurate impression that even private citizens who just read Jim Larkin and Michael Lacey’s exposes would be in a bad light to the grand jury. Jim and Michael decided to expose all of these, and for that, they were illegally arrested.

If Jim Larkin and Michael Lacey were men were any other kind of people, like those who would let it go, they would have just gone out quietly. But Jim and Michael decided to sue the Maricopa County, and for that, they received a $3.75 million settlement reward money, and with this money, they plan to fund all the groups that fight for freedom of speech, migrant rights, civil rights, as well as human rights that come to them.

The fight for these rights has reached its crucial stages especially now with how much the political landscape has changed. Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals or DACA which protects hundreds of thousands of children just got repealed very recently, and this means very uncertain times for the undocumented children.

It is estimated that around 800,000 individuals were protected by DACA but now that it has been repealed, who knows how much uncertainty and fear all these children are feeling right now. DACA prevents the deportation of undocumented youths who meet specific requirements or prerequisites. It also promotes opportunities for them like a social security number, and a chance for a legal job in the US. In a lot of states, it even allows these youths who are just in the country for a better life and opportunity, to have access to an in-state-tuition fees and even a driver’s license.

DREAMers, the leading group that is fighting for DACA is now being empowered and funded by the Lacey and Larkin’s Frontera Fund. Lacey and Larkin also provide advice to them as well as crucial information. According to studies, 95% of DACA beneficiaries study, work on both. They contribute to the country with the taxes in colleges and universities they enrolled in. Most of the 95% DACA beneficiaries get their earnings from the advancement of their education, buying cars, & buying homes, or starting up their own businesses.

For their part, DREAMers admit that they are also scared for the welfare and psychological condition of the poor children that will be affected by the repeal of DACA. But this is also the time to be brave and vigilant, so they are calling their allies for this fight, and their rallying point is the Frontera Fund.

Bob Reina Works To Bring A Million Reasons To Tampa Bay Humane Society

What do you consider to be an animal lover? Do you consider the people who stand behind contributions to local shelters and organizations to be animal lovers or do you classify animal lovers as the people who will do everything in their power to help a stray dog or cat? If you choose the latter of the two, you will be thankful to Bob Reina. He not only rescues them himself, he also rescues them by donating money to a charity.

 

Each year, there is an annual gala held for the Tampa Bay Humane Society. The humane society will gather some of the most prominent people in Tampa for a night of fun and dancing and great food. During this gala, guests are invited to make a donation of any amount to the animal shelters.

 

Bob Reina is someone who stands behind the animal shelters. Not only does he make sure that he donates money to them yearly but he is also one who helps out the strays he comes in contact with. Bob hopes to avoid finding any more strays as it is, he already has 11 strays living in his home. These strays include a number of dogs and cats. One pup was rescued after being attacked by an alligator which took his leg in the attack.

 

When he brings each new stray home, he has to add more people to the payroll to help care for these animals. Even then, Bob doesn’t care. He still wants to help them out as much as he can. Currently with the number of dogs and cats in the home, Bob has 2 housekeepers who work to rid the home of pet dander and hair. Learn more: http://www.bizjournals.com/search?q=Bob+Reina

Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi And What He’s Done For Banco Bradesco SA

Banco Bradesco SA – short for “South America” – is one of the largest banks in Brazil. It was founded in 1943 by daring entrepreneur Amador Aguiar, in the then-tiny town of Marilia, Sao Paulo, Brazil. Since it began operating, the bank has only had two Presidents and four Chief Executive Officers, proving it’s had honorable, successful executives throughout the entirety of its lengthy history.

Bradesco’s now-former President, Mr. Lazaro Brandao, stepped down slightly more than one month ago, during the beginning of October of 2017. Although he was 91 years of age at the time, making him the oldest head of any major financial institution in the world, nobody expected his departure. He was only the second President throughout the financial institution’s history, holding the post since 1990, when founder and initial President Amador Aguiar stepped down due to personal health concerns.

Now-former Chief Executive Officer Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi moved into the role of Presidency to fill the current void, while another executive is stepping into the role of CEO until Banco Bradesco finds a replacement to Mr. Trabuco, expected to materialize sometime during the month of March of 2018, when the bank holds its annual shareholder conference. Newsmedia sources have shared there are seven candidates running for the position of CEO.

Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi served Bradesco as CEO well throughout the past decade, since he joined the high-level executive team in 2009. Further, Mr. Trabuco has served the organization well throughout his entire career, since he was hired in 1969.

For example, while Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi was the head of Bradesco Seguros, the insurance segment of the financial institution, he was responsible for growing the market share of the organization from 23% to a true quarter of the market, or 25 of the entirety of the insurance sector in Brazil, the fifth-most populated country on the planet.

Even better, despite Seguros bringing in 26% of Bradesco’s profits, Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi rose the profits of the segment to an astounding 35% of the whole organization’s net income.

Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi started out as nothing more than a bank teller at the Marilia branch of Bradesco in 1969.

After just two years of working in the entry-level position, Mr. Trabuco was moved a distance exceeding five hours’ worth of driving – proving his dedication to Banco Bradesco’s success – east to the bank’s corporate headquarters. In 1984, Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi became the Director of Marketing at the bank, where he played an important part in how the organization reached out to clients.

It was at this time Banco Bradesco began segmenting and targeting its clients and consumer base, as doing so – as shown in companies throughout the world – helps maximize profits and best serve customers’ needs. Although he didn’t pioneer segmenting and targeting, Mr. Trabuco helped populate the practice in the Brazilian banking industry, as few companies throughout the world were engaging in the practice of both up until this point.

Mr. Trabuco earned a bachelor’s degree in philosophy from the University of Sao Paulo after graduating high school earlier than his fellow students. Following his undergraduate degree, he went to the School of Sociology and Politics of Sao Paulo to earn a postgraduate degree in sociopsychology. These two degrees played an instrumental part in his rise to the top of Banco Bradesco, though it took 40-some years to become the true head of the organization.

Luiz Carlo Trabuco Cappi remains one of the best-known and -paid executives throughout the Brazilian banking industry, let alone the whole country of Brazil.

Human, migrants, and civil rights groups- their importance

Almost every country on earth is battling issues of human rights violations. Human rights violations are injustices committed against the fundamental human rights set out by the international community under the banner of United Nations Declaration of Human Rights.

One of the countries in the world that is has been faced with its fair share of human rights violation is the United States. Despite this fact, it remains one of the countries that uphold human rights adequately. The United States is very outspoken on issues of human rights violation that happen either on their land or any other country in the world.

In the United States, the number of human, civil, and migrants’ rights group is very huge. All these groups have a responsibility of overseeing justice prevail in America and the world all over.

Some of the popular rights groups include; Amazon Watch, ACLU Immigrants` Right Project, The Advocates for Human Rights, The Advocates for Human Rights and Anti-Defamation League.

Amazon Watch

This is a rights group based in the Amazon region, U.S. the role of this group is to protect the rights of the people living in Amazon. Amazon Watch works with other organizations that operate in the region to ensure that all acts of injustices are highlighted. Learn more about Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin: http://james-larkin.com/press/ and http://james-larkin.com/

The group is involved actively in initiatives that promote civil rights of every resident of USA. Amazon Watch also addresses issues of environmental degradation in the area. Din one particular case they stood with the community in demanding action be taken against companies carrying out environmentally degrading projects.

ACLU Immigrants` Rights Project

ACLU Immigrants` Rights Project is involved in protecting human and civil rights of the people. The group uses the approach of outreach, litigation, and advocacy. The organization usually goes to courts to seek the interpretation of controversial laws. Read more: Michael Lacey | Twitter and Jim Larkin | Crunchbase

They also move to court to seek orders prohibiting implementation of some laws that do not obey the human rights charter. The group has a big role in the southern border with Mexico where cases of migrants’ torture and massive violations of human rights are recorded.

Ant-Defamation League (ADL)

This is an international group that protects the rights of Jewish community. The group was founded in 1913. The group has been educating communities on the importance of obeying human rights irrespective of one religious belief or origin. The group has also been involved in conflict resolution initiatives, especially in the Middle East region.

The Lacey and Larkin Frontera Fund

This is an organization that is based in Arizona. Its main activities revolve around providing financial solutions to non-profit migrants’ rights groups that exist in Arizona. The organization was started through the efforts of two journalists, Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin.

The Lacey and Larkin Frontera Fund was initiated with $3.75 million. So far they have funded a good number of rights groups in the state.

The Southern Poverty Law Center

The Southern Poverty Law Center has an intriguing map of the United States that shows the locations of 917 hate groups throughout the entire country. On the map, symbols denote what kind of organization each location is.

For example, an orange circle with a white fist inside means white nationalist; a light blue circle with a white circle inside means anti-Muslim; a dark blue circle with a white circle on the inside means Black Separatist; a red circle with an X inside means Neo-Confederate; a dark blue circle with a triangle pointing down means anti-LGBTQ; an orange circle with a red square inside means anti-immigrant; a black circle with a gray X means Holocaust denial; a green circle with a white circle inside that is green on the inside means general hate; a gray circle with a Ku Klux Klan hat means Ku Klux Klan; a yellow circle with a three pointed crown means Christian identity; a gray circle with a swastika on the inside means Neo-Nazi; a red circle with a black music note means hate-music and a gray circle with a black goblet means radical traditional Catholicism. These symbols are not symbols that these organizations give themselves—they are just symbols that the Southern Poverty Law Center puts on their website to denote what kind of organization is which, so that no one gets confused. Read more: Village Voice Media | Wikipedia

If you click on a symbol for a hate group location, a little bubble will pop up telling what the organization is called and what type of organization it is, in words.

Something to consider is the fact that now at days, the media and the politicians are pushing the notion that certain views are inherently “wrong” or “hateful,” and that people with such views should not be given a chance to be included in peaceful, scholarly dialogue.

All of these organizations that are listed on the site are different, and it is pretty reasonable to believe that the individuals who take part in these organizations have a variety of views. Learn more about Jim Larkin and Mike Lacey: https://about.me/jim_larkin and http://james-larkin.com/

Among these many organizations, there could be some that are peaceful and have very reasonable, justifiable views that are just politically incorrect because they go against the specific views of the Southern Poverty Law Center.

There could also be some organizations that are weirder, more hostile and wish to wreak physical and legal havoc upon other people’s lives—and are perhaps more heavily involved in degenerate activities. Each group has its own set of beliefs and goals.

The reasonable organizations and the crazy organizations are grouped under one umbrella, when they probably should not be.

The Lacey and Larkin Frontera Fund

Fortunately, the Lacey and Larkin Frontera Fund is not on that list. This is because of the fact that they are pro-Hispanic and pro-undocumented immigrant—the most pro-immigrant that you can ever get.

They are also pro LGBTQ. However, it is of sound judgment to think that the SPLC and others with the same views as the SPLC would consider the Lacey and Larkin Frontera Fund as a “hate group” if it focused on the plight of White Americans—even if the Lacey and Larkin Frontera Fund was still pro-immigrant and pro LGTQ.

How Nathaniel Ru Spearheaded The Launch And Growth Of Sweetgreen In Partnership With His Business Associates

Nathaniel Ru is a Georgetown University alumnus who has grown to become the owner and manager of a successful organic restaurant. He began the enterprise in partnership with two schoolmates who shared his vision of launching a healthy eating plan in Georgia. Nathaniel Ru stated that Sweetgreen’s ultimate aim is to change the eating habits of an entire society and generation. He is an admirer of Kevin Plank, Under Armour’s CEO, explaining that he works for more than the enterprise’s revenue. The restaurant which has now become a sensation in the area and to tourists began as a 560 square foot tavern. It is currently a 21 store building that loads its food directly from the farm onto the tables using the input of expert hospitality staff.

 

Nathaniel Ru commented that the growth of Sweetgreen is the contribution of analytics, global marketing schemes and professional decision making. The launch of the restaurant’s first location was faced with devastating news upon attempting to book a room. The building’s landlord denied them an opportunity but eventually gave in to their request after a month of relentless calling and business persuasion solutions. When the landlord finally met the young business entrepreneurs, she was highly impressed with their business plan and vision. She commented that they would go a long way and was happy to become a part of something revolutionary. Nathaniel Ru added that the opening of the restaurant fell on the right dates, seeming that they had prepared enough material to catapult them towards a better future. Currently, they have regional branches in Washington, Philadelphia, New York and Boston.

 

Sweetgreen has an urban and creative spirit that draws in the millennial society from every society that they have an operation. They did not begin their enterprise with a set of values that they would embody but later drafted five statements that encompass their belief and their vision. Nathaniel explained that Sweetgreen values customer feedback and has a long-term undeterred focus to create a win-win situation for all players.

 

During the restaurant’s launch, the entrepreneurs planned an opening party that only had the attendance of their families and investors. The underachievement prompted them to start the music food connection that has music playing every Saturday and Sunday in the open space to attract customers. They then launched an open space food music festival where people would buy organic food sourced from a nearby farm. The festival, Sweetlife, has become a sensation in the region and has had the gracing p=of performances by icons such as Kendrick Lamar.
