In this session we will discuss the Skid Row street participatory action research (PAR) initiative conducted by, with and for Black communities. Street PAR is a place-based investigation of community issues relating to street life including local community bonding and engagement in legal and illegal activities towards survival. Street PAR situates its lens and outcomes towards curtailing the conditions of structural violence. We will focus on research taking place in the Skid Row Black Men and Boys PAR Initiative that focuses on alternatives to reentry and solutions to the conditions of poverty and homelessness.
