Equity and justice are often used interchangeably, despite their meaningful differences. This is especially true in research and data approaches intended to support communities of color. In this presentation, Community Researcher Dr. Andres Lopez provides conceptual differences between equity and justice in community research and data work and a framework for how both can support one another. Critical examples of research and data equity and justice in the context of dominant institutors and community-based organizations are explored, along with crucial elements of power-sharing, collaboration, resourcing, data sovereignty, self-determination, and desired-based approaches. Attendees will better understand how and why supporting research and data equity and justice efforts matter now more than ever.
