Doing Justice as a Path to Sustainability in Community Work
This dissertation illustrates an ethical positioning for doing justice in community work, one that is informed by a philosophy of solidarity and social justice activism. I am interested in the challenges in supervising community workers who work alongside clients who are subjected to social injustice and extreme marginalization. How can we support community workers in doing this difficult work in the margins in ways that are in accord with our collective ethics for social justice? How can we experience sustainability and transformation collectively across time? This writing offers a hope-filled response to these questions bridging activism and community work.
