Talking points:
1. What accountability and support will be in place to ensure advocates are hurting (not harming) the situation
2. Judges must be held accountable for listening to exculpatory evidence.
3. Steps must be taken to ensure that statements are not outside the record, manifest proper, and not prejudicial

PROJECTS

    • Pi Place (funding for emergency shelter for women and children working to break the cycle of domestic abuse).  *We recently organized community members to raise money for a local Tucsonan to settle an eviction due to abuse, and supported our friend through the process of securing long-term housing.
    • Transcend Tucson Etsy Shop (arts and more created by survivors and allies, where 75% of the proceeds goes to the artist, and 25% goes to fund education for fostering trauma informed communities and Courts which benefit victims and survivors of domestic abuse.)
    • Pi Place Plus, LLC – Anti-Violence Museum (includes space for resources that include transitional housing, job training, education for individuals working to break the cycle of domestic abuse and bullying)
    • Victims United – Victims United is a team of victims, survivors, allies, and advocates working together to break the cycle of violence.
    • Vote Felicia Chew (current politicians maintain policies and programs that perpetuate the cycle of abuse.  Felicia is not a politician.  Felicia is a mother, educator, and humanitarian who recognizes that many of our current politicians are more focused on politics than people).  *Note: Contributions to Vote Felicia Chew are separate from Other Projects.  Contributions to support the campaign must be made directly to the campaign, and they are disclosed fully.
    • YouTube Channel. Speak up on your own YouTube channel.  You can subscribe to Felicia’s YouTube Channel to hear Piano Improv… and for other videos that Felicia creates that are relevant to her life as a teacher, advocate for breaking the cycle of systemic domestic abuse, and human who owns cats and loves water and people. An extroverted introvert, YouTube and Facebook are great ways for Felicia to share the wisdom she gains from the community around her. #StopTheBlame #StopTheShame #OurChildrenAreWatching #BreakTheCycle #ListenBelieveBeLove #PeaceLoveAndAppleSnacks

1. Pie, Felicia (PLUS).  A 100% sustainable facility that includes a Co-op for survivors of domestic violence, and an on-site community center which houses Pie, Felicia!

2. Members of the Co-op would have the opportunity to work in the areas of Education, Advocacy, and Outreach.

We are a network of individuals, groups, and businesses who are working to end systemic domestic violence.  1 out of 4 women, and 1 out of 7 men will experience domestic violence.  Felicia Chew Community Projects is a licensed educational small business in the City of Tucson, Arizona.

Our small local woman-owned business works to bridge the gaps between existing services and supports for ending domestic violence, and the individuals who are seeking support.

A Welcome Message from Felicia Chew

Hello!

Thank you for visiting!

My name is Felicia Chew.  I am a Mother, Teacher, and Advocate for each of us, and for all of us.  I am the Founder of Felicia Chew Community Projects.

Meet Felicia

I moved to Tucson from New Mexico where I lived and taught on the Zuni Indian Reservation and also for Gallup-McKinley County Schools.  I was born and raised in California, and became a helper at Esprit de la Danse; a TA for Ballet classes, Asian-American Studies classes, and Resource Classes in Davis; and taught for the Woodland Joint Unified School District, eventually becoming the District Interventions Coordinator.

In Tucson, I worked at La Baguette Bakery, the Home Depot, and I taught at the Bright Star Learning Center, the JCC, Animas Dance Center, ZUZI!, for the Amphitheater Public School District, Tucson Unified School District, Flowing Wells School District, Presidio School, and the Tucson Hebrew Academy.

I recently returned to the classroom, and currently have a seat on the Catalina High School Site Council, and the DaVinci Tree Academy School Board. For the past three years, I worked as a substitute teacher in the community, as an education presenter for the Environmental Education Exchange, and also with  “Felicia Chew Community Projects“.  The three main Projects at this time focus on identifying gaps in social services and building bridges.  The “Tucson Quilt Project” allows Tucsonans (and visitors) to share their messages and ideas with the community.

The “Tucson Zines”  Project (pronounced ‘zeens’) provides a voice for tweens and teens in Tucson and the surrounding areas.  The “Domestic Violence Support Services” Project provides education, advocacy, and outreach to victims and survivors of domestic abuse, and also to their families, and families of perpetrators.

Please connect with us — join me at a “Create A Square” event, or join me in ending the cycle of domestic abuse, or join me in empowering our teens and tweens with their voices and stories!

I hope you have a great day, and I look forward to seeing you soon!

🙂 Felicia
