The sentence is correct with the verb "are" to agree with "people".

By "joining", I think you mean the relationship between "people" and "whose". These are antecedent and relative pronoun. It can be said the the pronoun "whose" refers to the noun "people".

I suggest you use the search phrase "relative clauses with 'whose'" in a google search. You will get very many results.
