An Introduction to Research Justice aims to build the capacity of grassroots organizers and community members and better equip marginalized communities to reclaim, own, and wield all forms of knowledge and information. With strategic support, the knowledge and information generated by these communities can be used as political leverage to advance their own agendas for change.
The toolkit effectively:
- Explores the theory of Research Justice – a strategic framework that seeks to transform structural inequities in knowledge production
- Advances community-driven research as a powerful tool to build grassroots power
- Helps participants choose which research methods will prove most effective for their campaigns and organizing objectives
- Employs popular-education techniques to encourage leadership development
