To utilize action research in solidarity with community partners to understand and expose injustice, build social theory, and promote collective action.

  1. Build and sustain mutually beneficial community partnerships that transcend any particular project;
  2. Work alongside community partners to better understand social problems and create transformative solutions.
  3. Work to co-develop useful frameworks for community engagement, critical practice and social change; and
  4. Create a learning culture for all members of the research team to contribute in a meaningful way while building on our individual strengths.
