Just Safety Dialogues – Tucson

October 10, 2023 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm


Just Communities Arizona is excited to announce the Just Safety Dialogues, a series of three thought-provoking events taking place across the state. These dialogues aim to foster discussions on holistic and inclusive community safety by highlighting examples from around the US and here in Arizona.

Each event will feature a panel of representatives from national organizations as well as some from the host community (Tucson, Phoenix, Flagstaff) that are creating safety and wellbeing in their communities in new and creative ways.

The aim of these events is to expand our definition of “safety” beyond preventing and responding to crime to include meeting basic human needs, bolstering economic security, addressing mental and behavioral health and wellness, and providing community cohesion and belonging. The panels will showcase the tremendous capacity of local communities to address their own needs.


Host/Co-Sponsors: City of Tucson, National Lawyers Guild UA student Chapter
John Bauters, Arizona State Director for the Alliance for Safety and Justice, on Trauma Recovery Centers.
Danny Howe, founder of Earnest House and The Howe Project, on innovative approaches to transitional housing.
Jacob Robles, a founding member of Flowers & Bullets, on art, culture, and sustainability work in community.
TC Tolbert, Co-Founder of Building Out Safer Spaces (BOSS), on creating opportunity and community spaces for BIPOC and Women, Queer, Trans, and Femme of Center people.
