Our Team and Board

Christina Peoples

Executive Director/Board Secretary

(209) 430 – 2917 | CP@aaawlc.org

I joined the AAAWLC board because of the fruitful work it produces. The vision and mission of the organization align with my core values and purpose in life. I want to use my talents and strengths to support an organization that is rooted in healing and helping others to grow. The organization is named after a woman that has and still continues to impact my life to this day. Her work in social justice, education, and health were meaningful because of her commitment to building strong relationships with those she served.  I want to make sure that I incorporate those same skills and tools within our work and continue the work that she loved the most.

Following thorough research about AAAWLC’s vision, mission, and services for the Black community in Stockton, I was inspired to become part of the AAAWLC team. The years that I have worked in organizing and advocacy for the black and brown community in Stockton exposed me to the community-rooted efforts of Pastor Amelia Adams for those marginalized and her legacy that inspired the establishment of the AAAWLC after such a woman of faith. I am grateful to be part of this legacy by contributing to the provision of resources that meets the needs of the Black community and the community of color in the city of Stockton. The AAAWLC is an answered prayer for a place for my faith-based and community-rooted passion to find expression, as it offers me an opportunity to be part of a team that is invested and committed to changing people’s lives and this community for the better.

Henry Phillips

Board Chair

I joined the AAA WLC board because I believed in the work that Pastor Adams had done in the Stockton community, and I know that it has made a difference in people’s life. The Whole Life Center continues this great work and endeavors to empower people to become their own advocate as well as advocate for others.

Hallelujah to the Lord! I consider it a privilege and an honor to serve alongside a passionately faithful team of believers who serve as a testament to Amelia Adam’s spiritual walk. I remember her as a prayer warrior and woman of excellence! I appreciated her all day prayer events on Saturdays and her tireless efforts to model the power of spiritual disciplines. I am grateful for this opportunity to serve and support community growth through the AAA WLC board. My contribution is to listen, research, and learn how I can value add to the long term sustainability of her impeccable legacy.
