YOUR IMPACT AT WORK

Thanks to the Addiction Awareness Initiative we reached our goal and have been awarded the $1,000 in matching donations from our fundraiser!

A huge thank you to Pandora's Pizza, a Leucadia staple, for the generous $400 in proceeds from "The Nava" pizza of the month. Individual donors generously got us to where we needed to be to earn the matching donation!

Now it's time to get to work!

 

We are currently seeking community members who would be interested in serving on the AAI committee to research ways the NCJA can make an impact on the Opioid Epidemic in the local communities of North County and San Diego. Committee members will work closely with the NCJA Board of Directors to develop achievable goals including Harm Reduction Services, Education, and Addiction Support. 

The NCJA Antiracism Platform

When NCJA began, Black Lives Matter was one of our activism groups that we followed and supported with our voices. Our BLM work has included marching, donating, and volunteering as individuals. We've also promoted and followed March for Black Women San Diego and Black Lives Matter San Diego. We have antiracist leaders among us, whose activism has created and supported the NCJA Antiracism Reading Group and guided us through some stages of un-learning. 

 

Still, is it enough? 

 

The purpose for holding space to discuss antiracism work and the current state of protesting and pushing for reform is to define our work in ways that can lead others to take action and support those groups and individuals who are working toward Black liberation and antiracist learning. 

 

We met together and developed a set of guides and ideas to create the NCJA Antiracism Platform. We hope to

clearly define our antiracist values as it relates to action, both individual and collective.  This will then help us define what the next step is for the NCJA as a whole when comes to the current civil rights unrest.

 

ANTI RACIST PLATFORM + FOCUS 

The NCJA supports and uplifts Black led organizations that focus on Black Liberation, Black Moms, Black Trans Folks, Black Students and dismantling of the school to prison pipeline. Our approach to any of our social justice work will always be through an antiracist lens.

Why We changed our name

Message from our founder, Lisa Nava:

 

We began as mothers, daughters and wives over coffee. Since November 15, 2016 we have met, organized, marched, protested, gathered, welcomed and rested. Our grassroots beginning and focus has always been on positive action, which we believe will ultimately lead to real, progressive change.  We have had hundreds of actions in the nearly two years we've existed -- to resist the administrations agenda, support those targeted by the policies and chaos and increase voter turnout and engagement. We influence political change by voter engagement, positive action and amplifying a message of the people.


We will steadfastly continue to work with all agencies and leaders in the North County area and beyond to bring advocacy around issues that affect people, especially immigrants, refugees, LGBTQI, women and youth. 

Why the name change? Acknowledging the narrow viewpoint of our white existence is a large part of the Women's Movement of today. Upon reflecting and attending the Women's Convention last October and numerous discussions, we decided to ask for counsel from community members, historians and each other. It became evident that our name, although powerful in its inception and idea, was a harmful reminder of early Americans pioneer days and conflicts. Native Americans viewed the Wagon Circles as an invasion, a time when many husbands and sons would not return from battle. 

In addition to our mission of inclusivity, our name change signifies a commitment to justice in our local community by networking and supporting local non-profits and resources. We will continue to follow the leadership from Indivisible, Women's March and listen to the needs of our marginalized groups. 

Support includes:
North County Immigration Task Force, Border Angels, Safe Harbors, San Diego Rapid Response, North County Women's March, Fill-a-Belly, Los Angelitos, 49th District Action Council, Refugee Family Support, the Muslim community, Black Lives Matter and more.
