SURVEYS FOR SOCIAL JUSTICE
In the cycle of building, running and evaluating
a campaign there are many types of research methods you
will probably use, including library research, oral histories,
and observation. Creating a survey is one great way to gather
information as a part of your campaign strategy.
Community surveys can be used at all stages
of a social justice campaign. For example, when your group
is in the early stages of a new campaign and you are doing
community investigation, a survey
is helpful to find out what issues the community identifies
as being important.
Other ways surveys have been used by community
When you do a survey, you can get a
large amount of information from a broad range of people,
use the responses to back up your
campaign and involve your community in the research process
all at the same time!
