Community Engaged Research and Social Justice: Lessons learned from labor and youth organizing

Wednesday, November 10, 6:00-7:30pm (EST)

RSVP HERE

Rigorous, theoretically informed empirical research can advance social justice. Dr. Veronica Terriquez will discuss her experience conducting community-engaged research involving students and community partners. She will highlight lessons learned from collaborative research efforts focused on informing policies and programs that address the needs of immigrant, racialized, and low-income populations.

Dr. Veronica Terriquez is the Director of the UCLA Chicano Studies Research Center. She holds faculty appointments in the César E. Chávez Department of Chicana/o and Central American Studies and the Urban Planning Department. Trained as a sociologist, her research focuses on social inequality, civic engagement, immigrant integration, and youth transitions to adulthood. Informed by over two decades of connections to social justice movements in California, much of her research has implications for local and regional policies affecting Latinx, immigrant, and other low-income communities of color. Her research has been published in the American Sociological Review, Social Problems, Social Science & Medicine, Sociological Quarterly, Gender & Society, Community Development, Education Policy, and other journals. Additionally, Dr. Terriquez has co-authored with colleagues and students over 50 widely disseminated research reports on labor, community, and youth organizing. She is currently writing a book on how grassroots youth organizing is shaping the political incorporation of second generation immigrant youth.
