Felicia Chew Community Projects Overview

…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
  • Stigmas
  • Shaming
  • Blaming
  • Court processes
  • Corrections processes
  • Economic duress
  • Lack of effective social services
  • Lack of responsibility and accountability
  • Outdated (and non-trauma informed) policies, processes, and practices
  • Inefficient (and insufficient) budgets
  • Inefficient (and ineffective) supervisorial efforts and actions.

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
  • Updated policies
  • 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, to be an umbrella to several Projects working toward ending the cycle of systemic domestic violence, connecting with local resources and efforts to create a happier and healthier community for each of us and all of us — not just some of us.
