Reclaiming Science: What is community-based science?

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

From the atomic bomb to the Tuskegee syphilis trials, modern science is tied to imperialism. We`ll discuss a people`s history of science in the past/present, then develop a vision for the future. What are the goals/practices of community-rooted science? How to fund it? How to make it accessible? Folks can bring issues from home & we`ll brainstorm what a community-science solution might look like. Participants will walk away with steps for how to build scientific research into their communities.
