OUR FOUNDER

ben frazierBen Frazier

Ben Frazier is a veteran Journalist, News Anchor, Host, Producer and Narrator. But now, Frazier is blazing a new trail, as a Community Activist! He is 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 reaping havoc on a section of the city which 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.”
