About Us:

After the shooting of Rumain Brisbon, we began successfully collaborating in 2015 with the Phoenix Police Department on “Ten Solutions to Build to Trust in Our City.” In 2020, Joanne Scott Woods, M.A., M.Ed., Coordinator, successfully petitioned Phoenix and the State of Arizona for the Proclamation of a Day of Racial Healing, with the support of Kim Baker, Project Director. The Coalition is now promoting a Racial Healing Campaign with the Day’s Annual Celebration and the #HowWeHeal BOOK CLUB on Racialized Trauma, a year-long Racial Healing Project, from February through October, twice a month on second Tuesdays, from 6 to 7 pm on Zoom.

Please go the Facebook Page, “People Demanding Justice Community Coalition,” under “Events,” for more details on the #HowWeHeal Book Club OR please email a request for an Event Invitation to Joanne at justice4allinaz@gmail.com.
