This webinar series unpacks the Research for Organizing Toolkit, a website and resource for organizations to conduct Participatory Action Research (PAR). PAR is a community-driven, power-building and action oriented method of research that helps us analyze and document the problems we see in our communities, allows us to generate meaningful data and evidence that strengthens social justice work and ensures that we are the experts about issues that face our communities.
Module 5 delves into focus groups as a method of qualitative data collection. We explore the benefits and challenges of conducting focus groups and look at what focus group data can look like in participatory action research projects.
