The Survivor-Centered Advocacy Project (SCA Project) was developed under a deliberate vision for “research justice” that seeks to:
- Explicitly address the imbalances of power and privilege in traditional research relationships and dominant positivist frameworks determining what counts as “legitimate”knowledge production
- Operate from a strengths-based perspective that recognizes the assets that exist in all individuals and communities
- Honor and center the voices and lived experiences of impacted communities as adding critical and diverse voices to knowledge production
- Pursue engaged social justice scholarship in such a way that will ultimately benefit the lived experiences of our communities
