Becoming Allies for Positive Change - A Unifying Goal for Community-Based Research
Keywords:Higher Education, Community-based Research, Community Engagement
AbstractBased on one community partner's experience in the Healthy Public Housing Initiative, the concept of becoming allies in advocating community change is explored as a unifying framework for the initial engagement and partnership development process. Integrating advocacy and community change as a central partnership goal allows the community's expert knowledge to emerge and be heard and supports relational equity in community-university partnerships.
