Sara Eccleston, Ph.D.
I am trained as a Community Psychologist to investigate practices and processes that support social transformation, human flourishing, and community organizing. I completed my undergraduate degrees in Sociology (BA), Political Science (BA), and Peace Studies (minor) at George Fox University in Oregon.
Community Psychology; Intersection of Race, Religion, and Community Organizing; Feminist, Decolonial, and Community Based Research Methods
My research explores how grassroots communities develop social critique and organize for social change. Much of my research is focused on investigating how American Christian faith communities understand the problem of racism and how they organize for antiracism. I intend my future research to engage with Indigenous organizing in the PNW. My research methods are primarily qualitative, feminist, decolonial, and community based.
