Community based research navigating the turbulent time and places of political and biological pandemics.
Session 1 – October 23, 2020, 11:00-1:00pm
The All-In Co-Creating Knowledge for Justice conference, originally scheduled for April 2020, has been postponed due to COVID-19. To encourage conversation and collaboration, the All-In organizers will host a series of virtual events that will provide time and space to deepen our conversations and support one another in our work to strengthen community and university responses to COVID and to racial justice movements. The first event will be October 23, 2020. We know that the turbulence of our time and places can only be navigated safely when we are ‘all-in’ ‘all-together’ to find creative ways to deploy our resources, resist the ongoing assaults on vulnerable communities, and renew our bonds of connection that sustain us.
We launch the series with an initial set of ‘cases’ meant to help us understand how community-university collaborations are evolving, what community partners need from universities in these times/spaces, what role research can play in the current struggles, what barriers partnerships are facing and what successes have they discovered.
We will explore a collaboration led by formerly incarcerated women, a partnership documenting the impacts of COVID on educational opportunity, a model for integrating university students in strategic research around the sense of connection and belonging of immigrants, and a higher education living/learning community designed for impactful partnerships.
We invite you, our growing network(s) of scholars, organizers, community leaders, funders, and students, to join All-In All-Together. More information and registration information is available at the All-In website.
Friday, October 23 at 11:00am to 1:00pm
