2009 Biennial

Realizing Our New Vision: Values and Principles for Practice, Research, and Policy

12th Biennial Conference of the Society for Community Research and Action. June 18-21, 2009 with Rutgers University in Montclair, NJ.

Beginning in 2005, SCRA initiated an extensive re-visioning process that examined the development of the field of community psychology over its 40 year history in the United States since Swampscott. The new vision statement, which was developed by the Community Practice Working Group, recommended by SCRA's Executive Committee, and approved by the membership, reads as follows:

The Society for Community Research and Action (SCRA) will have a strong, global impact on enhancing well-being and promoting social justice for all people by fostering collaboration where there is division and empowerment where there is oppression.
