Call to Action. We won’t be on a Primary Ballot. Be sure to write in “Felicia Chew” for Pima County Supervisor District 3 on your November 2020 ballot.
What is the role of a member of the Pima County Board of Supervisors?
“The Pima County Board of Supervisors is responsible for steering public policy in the region.
The five-member board provides direction to the County Administrator and the county’s various departments as they work to ensure safe communities, nurture economic development, sustainably manage natural resources and protect public health.
In addition to overseeing the delivery of a host of municipal services, from roads to parks and libraries and law enforcement, board members also are responsible for approving the county budget.
Elected to four-year terms, board members also set the amount of taxes to be levied.”
1 in 4 women and 1 in 7 men experience domestic abuse. Domestic abuse is a crisis and the crisis infects our community’s economy and ability to be healthy and happy. This crisis perpetuates due to the system, as systemic domestic abuse. To end systemic domestic abuse, we need policies, policy makers, and supervisors who will work together to break the cycle. It’s as easy as 1-2-3.
How can we break the cycle of systemic domestic abuse in Pima County?
Step One: Sign the Petition to add Coercive Control to Legislative Statutes. Currently, coercive control is not considered an offense in domestic violence, when we know that domestic violence is a form of domestic abuse. We know that abusers will seek to control their victims physically, but also collectively through emotional, psychological, financial, sexual, and mental abuse.

Step Two: Share your stories, or stories you learn about, with legislators.
Step Three: Elect Felicia Chew as one of the five Pima County Supervisors in 2020, to help implement effective practices and programs through a system of continuous improvement, which will break the cycle of domestic abuse.
