" The mission of the Phoenix Coalition is to engage the community to eliminate intolerance for the purpose of preventing hate motivated violence and cultivate a broader civic culture that embraces and promotes a diverse community. “
From Pride to Parties, Social Justice to Social Services, and Advocacy to Acceptance, we tackle everything we face in this world head-on. Of course, we like to celebrate, too, uniting our community in events that bring us closer and give us a break from our sometimes too-hectic world. Our lives aren’t just sunshine and roses, but we believe that together we can overcome any challenges that come our way.
Join us in our quest to make the world a better place, one courageous action at a time.”

The Davis Phoenix Coalition is partnering with community and civic groups to promote a pro-social climate and support those in need of advocacy in areas of bullying, hate incidents and discrimination. We are particularly excited to be working with the Davis Police department to host quarterly "Chats with the Chief" to build community relationships with the police, as well as our Monthly Rainbow Families Support group for families of the LGBTQ+ community.
To aid the school district in its efforts to build social emotional skills, the Davis Phoenix Coalition runs the annual Up-stander Carnival every October. Set in a carnival-like atmosphere, the event is designed to provide children in grades K-6 with activities that teach them to identify and respond to bullying. Along with hundreds of children, last year’s attendees included school district administrators, local civic leaders and youth volunteers.
