Our anti-violence PAR group launched last June. Since our first meeting, the team has done an incredible amount of work learning about anti-violence initiatives and the skills of community research, and digging in to issues affecting young adults in Red Hook. The team identified research questions, conducted over 30 interviews, and held several data collection events and focus groups. In December, the PAR team received an invitation to present at the Innovations in Participatory Democracy Conference. This invitation represents an opportunity for our young adults to share their work on the national stage. With the conference approaching next month, we are raising $10,000 for the trip now!
