The inaugural winners of the ALISE Community conn@CT mini-grants will present their projects (see below) and share their experiences collaborating with social justice organizations to create and innovate solutions to advance their missions. Grant winners will present the social justice organization’s library and information needs, their community engagement experiences, the impact on research, teaching, and/or practice, and how the collaboration serves as a model for progressive community action in the library and information field.  Audience discussion will follow to examine how these projects/experiences represent or contribute to developing a progressive community action model in library and information science, and what would constitute such a model.
