Focusing on the social, racial, economic injustices of Jacksonville
STOP THE VIOLENCE AND INCREASE THE PEACE.
BBUUC Members: Join us to explore opportunities for our congregation to engage in addressing these injustices locally, as allies/partners/collaborators with the Northside Coalition. This can expand our community outreach and strengthen our service to the greater community, while partnering with others who share our values of supporting Racial Equity, Accessibility, Diversity, and Inclusion.
Ben Frazier is a veteran Journalist, News Anchor, Host, Producer, and Narrator. And now, Frazier is blazing a new trail, as a Community Activist! He is the president and founder of the Northside Coalition of Jacksonville which was born on social media in 2015.
“We’re attempting to address the issues that are wreaking havoc on a section of the city that has been routinely ignored. We’re different in that we are a solution-oriented organization. We are committed to accepting the baton in the relay race of civil rights history. I have always been involved in community affairs, starting at an early age when I used to hold my mother’s hand as she marched in civil rights demonstrations in downtown Jacksonville.”
