U.S. Army Desert Storm Veteran, Community Leader Brings COVID-19 Protection Tech to Unforgotten Heroes

Alan “AP” Powell Partners with Noral Clean Technologies to Help Travis L. Williams Post 65

PHOENIX (PRWEB) July 23, 2020

AP & Associates, LLC, chaired by Phoenix-based businessman and nonprofit leader Alan “AP” Powell, is excited to announce a partnership with Noral Clean Technologies to bring the state-of-the-art BioProtect System to the Travis L. Williams American Legion Post 65, which serves veterans in South Phoenix’s 85040 zip code, one of the most vulnerable communities in the state.

Powell, a serial entrepreneur, Gulf War Veteran, philanthropist and a renowned strategic consultant, most recently launched the nation’s largest COVID-19 testing site, a free drive-thru, at South Mountain Community College through his nonprofit, the HeroZona Foundation. The location was specifically chosen to ensure that veterans and the local community have access to much-needed resources that can help them stay protected against the virus.

“Post 65 works hard every day to ensure that the military heroes who reside there are supported,” Powell says. “By partnering with Noral Clean Technologies and bringing this crucial sanitizing service to the facility, we are helping to keep all of the members safe from coronavirus.”

The BioProtect System by Noral Clean Technologies is a proven antimicrobial solution treatment that creates a microscopic barrier on both porous and non-porous surfaces for up to three months. The coating forms a shield of molecular spikes which carry a positive charge that attract negatively charged bacteria. Once attracted, the spikes pierce the cell and rupture its membrane, causing the micro-organism to die. The spray is colorless, odorless, environmentally responsible and nontoxic, making it safe to use in high traffic areas. BioProtect can be used to safeguard against coronavirus, MRSA, ringworm, influenza, HIV and more.

“Three months of protection from coronavirus and other harmful organisms will help to keep the legion safe and its members and guests healthy,” says J. Glynn Gross, CEO of Noral Clean Technologies. “We are honored to have been entrusted by AP and the American Legion to protect these heroes.”

Outside of the spray technology, the post will also be given BioProtect’s hand purifier that provides six hours of protection against germs, after just one application. Similar to the antimicrobial solution, the alcohol-free formula creates a protective barrier on the skin, with aloe vera infusion to hydrate.

Noral Clean Technologies with the help of AP & Associates, LLC, will be performing its patented and FDA and EPA-approved BioProtectUS system to provide three months of protection at the Post in August. Legionnaires will also be provided with the state-of-the-art hand purifier to keep themselves safe once the service is concluded.

“Since closing due to the pandemic, myself and the other Post officers have not felt ready to reopen to the public yet with the exception of our kitchen for takeout meals,” says Jarvis Reddick, Post Commander and retired U.S. Air Force veteran. “With the help of AP & Associates, and Noral Clean Technologies, we are hoping to welcome the veteran community back soon in the safest and healthiest way.”

Corporate businesses and residential communities interested in learning more about Noral Clean Technologies’ BioProtect services can visit noralcleantech.com or call 888-846-4356.

Bridge Forum Time for Change Series to Discuss Black Views and Actions to Reach Equality in America

Collaborative Effort Between Law Enforcement, Arizona Government, Business and Community Leaders, with Support from SRP, EPCOR and UPS

The HeroZona Foundation has announced a Bridge Forum on Tuesday, June 23 from 8 to 11 a.m. at the American Legion Post 65 (1624 E. Broadway Rd.) in Phoenix, which will discuss what it’s like to be Black in America and how to take actions to reach equality. This invitation-only event will also be live-streamed to the public on TheBridgeForum.com.

The Bridge Forum: Time for Change event will be the eighth Bridge Forum series from the organization to understand different perspectives, attitudes, and beliefs about community policing. The upcoming forum will focus on current events within the black community and law enforcement and examine how communities can work together with police to create equality in the nation.

“Bridge Forums are an essential tool in bridging the gap between communities and law enforcement,” says HeroZona Foundation Founder and U.S. Army Desert Storm Veteran, Alan “AP” Powell. “The black community needs to move from peaceful protest to action and this is what the Bridge Forum is designed to do.”

The Bridge Forum will include panelists such as General Manager for the Phoenix Suns, James Jones; Superintendent for the Roosevelt School District No. 66, Quintin Boyce; Arizona State Representative from District 27, Reginald Bolding; President for the Arizona Youth & College NAACP, Armonee D. Jackson; Founder of Lo-Lo’s Chicken & Waffles, Larry White; Senior Pastor of First Institutional Baptist Church, Dr, Warren. H. Stewart Sr.; City of Phoenix Police Chief, Jeri Williams; Maricopa County Attorney, Allister Adel; Chief Special Agent of Attorney General Arizona, Reggie Grigsby; Superintendent of the Phoenix Union High School District, Dr. Chad E. Gestson; Arizona State Senator for District 27, Rebecca Rios and President of the NAACP Arizona State Conference, Charles Fanniel. UPS, EPCOR and SRP are supporters of the event.

“As part of the Steering Committee for the U.S. Chamber’s National Initiative to Address Inequality of Opportunity, which will hold a national Town Hall a few days after this event, I know that the Bridge Forum will drive action both in Arizona and nationally,” says President & CEO of the Arizona Chamber of Commerce and Industry, Glenn Hamer. “The format could also serve as a model for much-needed conversations across America. This is a major American moment and the Arizona Chamber of Commerce and Industry is committed to being part of the solution. It is crystal clear that inequality of opportunity holds our economy back from reaching its full potential.”

The event will be moderated by the President & CEO of the National Newspaper Publishers Association, National Director of the Million Man March, and Assistant to Rev. Martin Luther King Jr., Dr. Benjamin F. Chavis Jr. Dr. Chavis first received international recognition in 1971 as the leader of the Wilmington Ten, he was wrongfully convicted of committing arson and received the longest sentence before becoming appealed in 1980. Chavis then went to graduate school, became a civil rights activist and was the former Vice President of the National Council of Churches.

“No one is safe until we are all safe and we know there is no place in any community or anywhere in the world for racism, bigotry or hate,” says UPS CEO, Carol Tome. “We will not stand quietly or idly on the sidelines of this issue. Today, we are reaffirming what we know is right and doing our part to accelerate progress. We will be champions for justice and equality, not just in our words but in our actions here in the U.S. and everywhere we operate around the world.”

“We are proud to support the HeroZona Foundation and its work to bring members of the community together in a collaborative effort to seek social justice,” said SRP Chief Public Affairs Executive, Rob Taylor. “The Bridge Forum provides a platform for people from all perspectives to engage in meaningful dialogue. This represents a path forward to establish lasting change.”

The Bridge Forum is supported by City of Phoenix Mayor, Kate Gallego, and Maricopa County Supervisor from District 3, Bill Gates. Honorary guests who will be present at the event include Helios Education Foundation Founding Chairman, Vince Roig; Greater Phoenix Leadership President & CEO, Neil G. Giuliano; Maricopa County Sheriff, Paul Penzone; and Arizona Manufacturers Council Chairwoman, Dawn Grove, among many other notable community members. Renowned poet extraordinaire and Founder of Homebase Poetry, “HB” Harold G. Branch III, will be a special guest at the event and read a poem titled “I Can’t Breathe.” Additionally, the City of Phoenix’s Outstanding Man of the Year for 2017 and this year’s Henry Clay College Congress Representative for the State of Arizona, Evan Pittman, will be playing the National Anthem and the Black National Anthem, “Lift Every Voice and Sing” on the violin. Senior Pastor of Pilgrim Rest Baptist Church, Terry E. Mackey, will be giving the invocation.

“The community is crying out for policy changes all around the world and this has never happened before,” says the President of the NAACP Arizona State Conference, Charles Fanniel. “The Bridge Forum was created to bridge the gap between the community and the police department. We want to build accountability and review how to have meaningful conversations to allow the police to better understand how we can build improved relationships and trust within our community.

“Dialogue around public safety is important, but we must lead these conversations into policy change,” says Arizona State Representative from District 27, Reginald Bolding. “I’m looking forward to seeing what legislation we can agree on to reform our system.

Previous Bridge Forums have included both high school and college aged participants in 2017 from South Mountain High School, and in November 2018 included participation from law enforcement and community leaders who discussed ways to better support veterans with recruitment, hiring, opportunities in service, veterans in crisis and support systems. In January 2018, the Scottsdale Police Department implemented 29 new initiatives from the Scottsdale Bridge Forum 2017, which included establishing sufficient resources for police personnel dealing with trauma, establishing dialogue opportunities with minority communities, enhancing engagement with the community’s youth and identifying ways to address the needs of the community related to behavioral health.

HeroZona Foundation Hosts Forum To Help Veterans With PTSD

Veterans, mental health professionals, first-responders and law enforcement officials gathered in Phoenix on Tuesday. They discussed stigmas surrounding PTSD and the obstacles veterans face when applying for a job.

The forum focused on improving the process for hiring those with PTSD. That issue comes into play especially when former service members apply for first-responder jobs.

Wanda Wright is the Arizona Department of Veterans’ Services director. She said the transition can be difficult for some because they have a habit of not discussing mental health issues while they’re serving.

“So when you come out, you sort of have that habit: I’m not gonna talk about it, I’ll work through it, I’ll figure it out on my own,” Wright said. “What we really need to be talking about is: let’s address it, help you fix it, help support you through it. We don’t want people to sit with trauma.”

Sharon Taylor has several family members who are veterans. She said she wanted to know more about what’s available for non-combat veterans.

“My husband experienced his PTSD because he was in the Coast Guard and had gone out on more than 800 rescue missions,” Taylor said. “So I was really glad to hear today that there are services available for him and I just learned that for the first time today.”

Some resources include a virtual peer mentorship program and support for families of those veterans who struggle with their mental health.

“Service members, spouses and veterans are a highly skilled group with phenomenal work ethic,” says HeroZona Foundation Founder and U.S. Army Veteran, Alan “AP” Powell. “It’s important to provide resources to those who served our country and help them make a successful transition into civilian life.”

Additionally, those who register and attend the hiring expo are eligible to score up to two free tickets to attend the evenings’ game between the Phoenix Suns and Miami Heat at 7 p.m. Tickets will go fast, so availability depends on those who register first.

How An Arizona Veteran’s Job Search Led To A National Summit

A Gulf War veteran who once faced career challenges is working to make it easier for other veterans to transition into civilian life.

When Operation Desert Storm veteran Alan Powell left the Army in 1991, he applied to be a police officer, state trooper and firefighter. But he faced hiring freezes and few opportunities designed for veterans.

“I guess the country wasn’t in such a patriotic mood as it is today,” he said.

Powell has added to the patriotic mood by creating the HeroZona Foundation which organizes a free veteran summit. The group’s third annual summit will take place Tuesday and Wednesday at the Sheraton Hotel at Dunlap and the Interstate 17 in Phoenix.

Tuesday’s session will focus on mental health and Wednesday’s panel discussions will address student veterans, military spouse employment and leveraging public-private partnerships. The HeroZona National Veteran Summit ends Thursday with a career fair and hiring expo at Talking Stick Resort Arena in downtown Phoenix.

“We actually make sure the employers try to give these veterans these positions beyond entry level positions because we want them to give them credit for their military service,” Powell said.

He said there are online tools to help veterans and employers translate military skills into civilian terms and software that can compile a list of skills based on a military title.

“Some of the skills I learned in the military transferred into me being able to work with people, being able to have a lot of respect for people and making me to catch on and learn things because when you’re in the military you have to adapt and overcome, so as a soldier, sometimes you may go in with one idea and them mission changes.” Powell said. “So being able to use those same skills you used in the military, you can apply those same skills in corporate America.”

Thursday’s free career fair is open to active duty military, Guard and Reserve, veterans, military spouses and caregivers. Those who register in advance are eligible for up to two free tickets to the Phoenix Suns game against the Miami Heat on Nov. 7, 2019. Tickets are limited.

According to the U.S. Department of Veteran’s Affairs, Arizona had 507,706 veterans in 2017, which equaled ten percent of the state’s population.

The Maverick Award, honoring the late Senator John S. McCain will also be presented at the awards ceremony and the 2019 recipient will be the President of Human Resources for Domestic U.S. Operation of UPS, Danelle MCusker Rees. During HeroZona National Veteran Summits inaugural event in 2017, McCain accepted the Lifetime Service Award at the ceremony, which was later renamed the Maverick Award in his honor. The Mission Continues Award, given for continuous support to the veteran community, will be given to President and CEO of the Phoenix Suns, Jason Rowley, and the Cesar Chavez Award for community service will be presented to President of the Associated Minority Contractors of Arizona, Ricardo Carlo.

The keynote speaker during the awards banquet will be Arizona resident and former Marine R.J. Mitchell, who was awarded the Navy Cross for his heroic actions during the second battle of Fallujah, Iraq in 2004. The Navy Cross is the second-highest military decoration for valor that may be awarded to a member of the U.S. Navy, U.S. Marine Corps or U.S. Coast Guard.
