Now that’s what we call RESEARCH JUSTICE!

Research justice involves a process in which one youth, immigrant, or low-wage worker meets a peer and says, “I am struggling.” That peer responds and says, “I am too.” They share their first-hand knowledge, and, in doing so, two “I” statements are transformed into a “WE” statement. In 2011, DataCenter has helped numerous communities come together and build a resounding chorus of “WE!” Check out this issue of our newsletter to hear how individuals have come together to make a WE. They stand in power, confident of their knowledge.

Communities on the margins, coming together, learning together and raising their collective voice at the center of the decision-making process…now that’s what we call Research Justice!
