Sean Mendez, Director of Solidarity Sports
On June 14, 2017, the Grenfell Tower fire in West London claimed seventy-one lives. It was one of the deadliest fires in Britain over the past century.
Sean Mendez has close ties to the community devastated by the fire. He runs Solidarity Sports, a nonprofit that works with at-risk and disadvantaged youth. That night, Sean lost children he worked with and members of their families. Sean talked to us with grace and passion about the devastating impact of the tragedy, fighting for justice for the families affected, and facing the unimaginable.
