LA CAN’s participatory-action research supports our organizing campaigns through rigorous investigation and data analysis – with projects ranging from community surveys to needs assessments. These reports also focus on aspects and areas of poverty, housing, civil rights, and community health that have been under-researched in academia, which is one of the reasons that these reports regularly find their way into classrooms throughout the country. Below you will find a selection of our community research projects.
A downloadable PDF version of the report can be found HERE.
