Participartory action research, Racism, Systemic racism, Mapping
Since spring 2017, I have been involved with a group of researchers on the Systemic Racism Curriculum Project. The goal of the group and research is to find effective means of educating people, specifically white people about the realities of systemic racism. Founded on research that white people know less about the systemic nature of racism, and that when people learn about one example they can understand the whole better. This interactive mapping tool is a medium for that learning and a way to engage people in the community. It is a tool that can easily be accessed and contributed to, as well as has the potential to spread outside of Bellingham, Washington, and even the US.
