Their Story
Power the Fight was founded by Ben Lindsay out of a deep belief in the value of human life and the importance of community. It is a response to a growing need for all parts of society to take responsibility for one another. Having spent more than 17 years working with and for local authorities, Ben has seen the impact of sustained austerity measures. Churches, faith groups and community groups, often with their own buildings and access to resources and volunteers, have a unique contribution to make. In 2016 following the murder of teenager Myron Yarde, Ben started gathering people from within and outside the local church to reflect, pray and create a space for dialogue for anyone in the community concerned about youth violence. Policy makers, police, youth workers, pastors, clergy and parents joined together to listen and learn from each other. This collective response inspired the beginnings of Power the Fight.
