Incredibly, another decade is just about to end! Here is a brief overview of what we accomplished this decade.
2010 – 220 little books from “The Adventures of Happy Joy” were donated to schools on the Zuni Indian Reservation and in the Gallup, New Mexico area.
2011 – We moved to Tucson, Arizona and became involved with Emerge!, the PTO at Holaway Elementary School, and with the City of Tucson’s Citizen Police Advisory Review Board. We worked in the community at La Baguette Bakery.
2012 – We became involved with the Valley of the Moon, the Watershed Management Group, and the Tucson Origami Club. We worked in the community at Bright Star Learning Center, the Home Depot, at KFMA Day, and the Amphitheather School District.
2013 to 2016 – We continued to build relationships in the community, and helped bring the breakfast and lunch program back to KIDCO. We sat on Community Boards in the Amphitheater Public School District and we became Association Representatives at our schools. We spoke up against bullies in Administration.
2017 – We continued to build relationships in the community, and Felicia campaigned for the Ward 3 Seat on the Tucson City Council, which was supported by amazing women like Laura Hogan, Laura Enriquez, Cathy Nichols, Casey Murray, Sawsan, Ferdane, and Mary. We trained to be crisis responders and victim advocates with the Pima County Victim Services Division.
2018 – We became licensed in the City of Tucson as Felicia Chew Community Projects. We hosted four Help End Systemic Domestic Violence events, and were supported by amazing musicians including Al Perry, Eb Eberlein, Jacques Taylor, Meka Love, Kuuleme Stephens. We worked to Save Golden Pin Lanes and started working for the Environmental Education Exchange, helping to educate our youth about the importance of sustainability. We secured a contract with the County as a Library Presenter.
2019 – We hosted the 2019 Domestic Violence Awareness Series #TheSameButDifferent, in conjunction with The Screening Room and Downtown Radio. We participated in the Border Patrol Citizen’s Academy, and the CIVX Project. Felicia re-registered as a No Party Preference voter, and filed to campaign for Pima County Supervisor (District 3). We became Courtwatchers and started an Etsy site. We reached over 100 viewers on Facebook! Live with the Domestic Violence Awarness Series. We accompanied victims and survivors to Court, and spent time listening and responding to victims in crisis through the Domestic Violence Support Services. We received an average of one call per week. We continued work with the Tucson Quilt Project.
2020 and beyond. We will continue the work to empower community members, so that we can break the cycle of systemic domestic abuse.
2018. We started a little rough, and ended with no carryover.
2019. We started a little rough again, but this time, we are ending with funds to pay for our business license, become an LLC, and we have set aside a little for beginning of the year expenses.
In 2020, we will continue to operate as a for-profit business, and work to Transcend Tucson. We thank you for your continued support!
