*Class Description: *Making Science Work for Social Justice will explore
the principles of ‘solidarity science’ and what it means for our
community. We will present a few examples that illustrate how solidarity
science solves problems by recognizing the significance of social,
political, economic, and cultural contexts and by inviting many people
and types of knowledge to the table. Participants will workshop how we
can use solidarity science to address the issues we identify in the
community, and how we can make science a public good.
Our workshop is intended for a wide audience with diverse perspectives.
At the core of solidarity science is ensuring that we are reaching
multiple experiences and understandings to solve problems. Our audience
is asking how to demand more from the scientific community, how to
create coalition, how to listen to each other better, how to critique
the role of science in our lives, and rather than asking, “how do we fix
this?”, asking, “who do we need at the table to fix this?” Everyone is
warmly welcome at this lively, exciting, and provocative workshop – join us!
This workshop will be facilitated by members of Science for the People:
Tatiana Cheeks, Andrew Cunningham, Steve Fernandez, Mia Fuentes Deonate,
Emma Harnisch, Elizabeth MacFarland, Sigrid Schmalzer, and Brian Schultz.
