Fathers & Families of San Joaquin

It is the vision of Fathers & Families to promote strong and healthy families and communities where children and youth are nurtured and fathers are engaged. FFSJ defines "healthy communities" as safe, strong and resourceful; treats individuals and families equitably and honestly; promotes positive family images and recognizes family strengths; and creates opportunities for individuals and families to achieve health, wellness and their human potential.

"Got Power?" (Part 3) 💡

Often times we use that phrase as a means to demonstrate community empowerment. When we say it, often times we neglect to consider that empowerment. Other times, when we say it we mean that people LITERALLY have no power.

During this Spring of 2019 FFSJ visited a family who had had their power shut off and on for indefinite periods of time throughout the year, causing not only power insecurity within the household, but also an insecurity of empowerment within the community. More so, the son of the family had been shot 5 times, his sister passed away shortly afterwards, and the mother needs to be on a breathing machine; consequences from PG&E not allowing them to change over the name to the correct renters. As you will see in the video this is one narrative of many living without Power in Stockton and throughout California.

As we continue with this year we ask you to join us in our quest to empower our residents and our community as we continue to build a movement for better health and justice for Stockton/San Joaquin County.

This is just one example of many families who cannot build power because they have no power. Let's empower them so that they can build a better future for their families and for the community of Stockton.
