About the CLIMATE Justice Initiative:
The Research Justice Shop (RJS), co-founded in 2018 and housed in the Newkirk Center for Science & Society, seeks to transform research practices to be more inclusive by facilitating equitable collaboration between the university and the communities most impacted by our collective social and environmental problems. As such, the RJS contributes to UC Irvine's aspiration to be a Minority Thriving Institution, a great partner to Orange County's diverse communities, and at the forefront of interdisciplinary, cutting-edge research. RJS trains individuals and organizations in research justice and community-based research methods; we consult on and implement community engagement strategies and conduct research projects that use community-based research methods such as participatory action research and photovoice; we also study community-campus partnerships and the pedagogy of engaged scholarship.
