The Public Safety Coalition

In July of 2019, a group of neighbors, organizers, elected officials, and non-profit organizations collectively worked together to form a Public Safety Coalition based in Ward 1. The Public Safety Coalition will work to bring together broad and diverse organizations from fields such as health, government, business, non-profits, education, civil society, arts, and labor along with new and long-time community residents.

Justice for DJ Broadus

On February 3, 2018, DJ Broadus, a 31-year-old father, brother, son, cousin, nephew, uncle and resident of Jacksonville, Florida, died after being shot in the head three times — once in the mouth and twice in the neck — by Gardner Kent Fraser, 29 in Macclenny, Florida. Despite Gardner admitting to killing DJ homicide charges have not been brought against Gardner. Learn more about how Florida's Stand Your Ground law and deep racial and political corruption has left DJ, his family, and our community without justice.


The world will be more peaceful if we connect broad and diverse individuals and organizations around non-violent goals and objectives.
