Statement from CCC&Y — Seeking true justice, equity and peace for all

Statement from CCC&Y — Seeking true justice, equity and peace for all

Acknowledging the collective fear caused by current events feels essential to us as an organization. (On Jan. 6) we watched the violent penetration of an institution that is intended to represent the voice of the people.  While we are in a movement to address trauma, reduce toxic stress, and injustice, in this moment, all of that seems to keep piling on.  We also acknowledge that the Capitol building has not historically or currently been a place of equitable access or representation from all voices, and yet it represents one place where the marginalized and their allies can shape justice and create a truer democracy. It is our intention to hold the community and each other in this wound, offer care, and continue our work of trauma healing here in Coconino County. With open hearts, may we continue to recognize our humanity and oneness while we move forward toward true justice, equity and peace for all.

Guest contribution — CCC&Y member says Coalition provides variety of support, education to the community

I have had the blessed opportunity to work with at-risk youth in Flagstaff for over 20 years.  I first learned of the Coalition when I attended the Child Abuse Prevention Conference over 15 years ago. Since then, the Coalition has been such a wonderful resource for me.  They provide support, education, and have helped connect me to individuals and other organizations that advocate for youth.

Not only have I been able to share useful information with my family and friends, but my work circle has also benefited.  The Coalition has shed light on mental health and well-being and is helping remove the stigma of mental health issues. Bringing mindfulness to the forefront is a bold step and I intend to continue the work.  I have already practiced a mindfulness activity with a small group of my colleagues, and will lead a longer one at next all staff meeting.
