2007 Biennial

Community and Culture: Implications for Policy, Social Justice, and Practice

11th Biennial Conference of the Society for Community Research and Action. June 7-10, 2007 with the University of LaVerne in Pasadena, CA. 

The theme of the 11th Biennial was Community and Culture: Implications for Policy, Social Justice, and Practice. A wide range of presentations addressed the implications of community and culture. Culture, often thought of in terms of race and ethnicity, was more broadly defined to encompass other shared meanings, for example, in linguistic, gender, generation, sexual orientation,
socioeconomic, organizational, geographical, and activity groups. Sessions throughout the meeting considered these issues and fostered constructive discussion, interaction, creativity, and the exchange of ideas involving community research and action in a variety of cultural contexts.
