…working to end systemic domestic violence by building relationships, sharing stories, and wisdom
…educating and empowering Tucsonans to #SpeakUp and Speak Out…
(L-R) Felicia Chew and Rissa Biagi tabling for Felicia Chew Community Projects. Can you contribute to their efforts and the efforts of the Projects?
The following Projects work to end the cycle of systemic domestic violence.
We believe that the cycle of systemic domestic violence perpetuates for many reasons, including, but not limited to, the following:
Lack of understanding
Lack of empathy
Lack of empowerment
Lack of effective social services
We believe the cycle of systemic domestic violence can be broken by many methods, including, but not limited to:
Updating and improving systems
Breaking the stigma
Stopping the blaming
Stopping the shaming
Closing gaps in Court processes
Closing gaps in support services for victims, survivors, and perpetrators of domestic violence
Providing opportunities for building relationships in the community
To that end, we licensed the small business Felicia Chew Community Projects on January 1, 2018, and to be an umbrella to several Projects working toward ending the cycle of systemic domestic violence.
