Abstract: (Show)
“Disrupting injustice and mobilizing social change,” examines tangible steps towards making meaningful social change around issues of injustice in our communities. The unique theoretical frameworks in this chapter speak across a broad range of disciplines, theories, and practices including indigenous knowledge systems, theories of critical pedagogy, healing justice, mindfulness, and asset-based community development. The chapter explores a four-part process that involves becoming proximate to communities and issues of injustice, shifting the historical and political narratives that exist about these injustices, getting uncomfortable with our own ignorance, arrogance, apathy, or pain, and, finally, cultivating hope as a collective act to drive social change efforts.
