Our work is rooted in a Participatory Action Research (PAR) framework which values the experience, knowledge, and leadership of those most impacted by injustice as we collectively work—through our organizing and community research—to make change and build community power.
PARCEO partners with community groups, university and leadership training programs, and a range of institutions that seek to deepen their organizing, research, cultural, and educational work; form principled, meaningful collaborations; develop new initiatives; and strengthen their internal processes with a focus on equity and accountability. Some of the many issues that partnering organizations focus on include educational justice; workers’ rights; gender and racial justice; challenging Islamophobia; immigrant rights; and health and food justice.

PARCEO consultations range from workshops and trainings, to participatory research and data analysis, curriculum and workshop development, strategic planning, assessment, and evaluation. All of PARCEO’s trainings, resources, and events grow out of our collaborative work with community groups.
