The National Mikey Powell Memorial Family Fund Appeal is now LIVE! Please pledge, share, comment. Help us make the lives of families and children affected by deaths and abuses in state custody feel just that little more supported.

CrowdFunder DonateThe National Mikey Powell Memorial Family Fund is being developed in conjunction with the Friends of Mikey Powell Campaign, The United Families & Friends Campaign and Migrant Media. Organisers also acknowledge the late Pauline Campbell who died in May 2008.

The fund will be the first permanent national resource of its kind for those affected by deaths in custody, making small grants available for families and their campaign groups across the UK to provide practical domestic assistance, to further the work of their own campaigns or to assist them in engaging in other local, regional or national campaigns, events and initiatives.

This fund will make a real difference for families and their campaign groups that need financial support during the often long and drawn out struggles for justice lasting for decades in many cases.

Tippa Naphtali (cousin of Mikey Powell & 4WardEver founder) said;
“The needs of affected families and children often get lost in the equally important work of campaigning and lobbying of state institutions. We want to change that with a permanent fund set up specifically for their needs.”

“Can you help? Make a pledge today and tell a friend!”
