This is the guidebook for the 2013 Biennial Conference of the Society for Community Research and Action (SCRA), June 26-29, 2013.
Theme: Communal Thriving: Pursuing Meaning, Justice, and Well-being
We aim to have a conference that will explicitly address the topic of communal thriving through highly participatory sessions. Many communities face enormous challenges with great dignity, resourcefulness, and courage. This conference seeks to explore the multiple ways in which communities thrive. People make meaning, pursue wellness, and struggle for justice throughout their lives. We seek to have discussions that honor people's search for meaning, justice, and well-being. We believe that in this tripartite pursuit, individuals and communities thrive.
