This session will draw from the Public Science Project’s 25 years of work with community-based organizations, activists, lawyers and young people to produce research rooted in the perspectives of those most impacted by injustice to document structural inequalities and build empirical data for policy, organizing, and popular education. It will focus on two projects: 1) The Morris Justice Project, a multi-year collaboration with community residents in the Bronx, where researchers and lawyers systematically and quantitatively documented the impact of aggressive policing on youth, adults, and elders through a secondary analysis of NYPD data conducted with the community and original data collected through a community-generated survey; and 2) The Survivors Justice Project, a new project launched in 2020 that works to document and animate the impact of the 2019 Domestic Violence Survivors Justice Act (DVSJA) alongside women who have been incarcerated. Presenters will share key commitments, radical possibilities, and their rich collaborative engagement on these projects, making clear why and how it is critical that those most impacted by injustice are situated at the center of research.
