As told by

Jovana is Phoenix born and raised. She has been organizing and fighting with her community against the injustices in the immigration and criminal system since 2007. Her relentless efforts reunited more than 400 families and she continues this work today as organizing director & legal strategist at the Arizona Democracy Resource Center. Jovana is excited to be a storyteller and participate on the PLAN board of directors because her mission in life is to bring "That justice, that clarity, that humanity back" to earth.

We are so honored to have had her share her story with us. Check it out below.
