Description

Social and environmental inequities (e.g., inequitable access to resources in low-income communities and communities of color) present a pressing societal concern. However, intervention programs, particularly those involving public health and social welfare more broadly, frequently focus on individual level outcomes. Such interventions tend to ignore that many of the social and environmental inequities experienced at the community-level stem from systemic inequities that ultimately manifest in poor health and well-being outcomes, particularly in the low-income communities and communities of color. In response to this, grass-roots, community-level strategies have gained attention in the public discourse concerning community health and well-being. Community-based Participatory Action Research (CBPAR) is a promising approach to working in and with communities to collaboratively 1) identify community interests and concerns (reflection), 2) develop strategies for studying community identified concerns (planning), and 3) developing actionable strategies for redressing social and environmental inequities (social action). In an effort to further understand the nuances of CBPAR, we aim to elucidate the role of value-based praxis in community-based research and action.

Keywords: CBPR, CBPAR, environmental equity, environmental justice, social action, community-based, praxis
