Voices for Change: A Social Action Campaign to Restore the Health and Safety of Residents of the Westside of San Bernardino County, California

Voices for Change (V4C) is a community-based participatory research (CBPR) collaboration including multigenerational communities of color and project partners (health department, elected leaders, policy-makers, community/faith-based organizations and educators) that seeks to put its findings into action. V4C engages participants through Photovoice (photography and prose), providing opportunities for individual and group data gathering, reflection, dialogue and social action regarding neighborhood assets and issues, which are shared in both community and town hall meetings. This group is collaboratively developing social action plans to address identified topics for improving the quality of life.
